Care to elaborate more? What are you referring to: stocks, the site itself, user base, what?

Vague thread is vague.

The next thing to watch is the possible acquistion of Opera.
Although Opera has a low rank within desktop browsers , it is better ranked within mobile
browsers.
The future of Facebook is tied to it's need to monetise mobile ad revenues.

Frankly, I have grown to dispise FB. If it crumbles into the sea, I will cheer.
Perhaps it is only because I cannot adequately navigate, or that I don;t undersatand the system, ut post something, and it's there forever. Typos and all.

I prefer email. Private as you want, with return receipt as well.

DOWN with FACEBOOK!

No, but there are some lawsuits. If I've got it straight, some people are suing NASDAQ because they couldn't successfully buy the Facebook shares that they wanted, and some people are suing JPMorgan-Stanley, who handled the IPO, for not informing small, retail investors about some business problems that would likely lower Facebook's future profits, making the FB shares worth less. FB knew, FB insiders knew, the investment bank knew, but they all kept quiet, so the big boys could unload their shares at the full initial price of $38 to the suckers, before the price sank when the news became public.

But JPMorgan-Stanley and FB seem to have a really good defense. They say that they didn't yet know about the bad news until the prospectus for the IPO was already printed up and distributed. And there is a law that prohibits them from disclosing any material information about a company doing an IPO that is not in the prospectus. They couldn't legally release the bad news until after the IPO event and retail investors had already bought up all those $38 shares from the insiders, who were very pleased to sell at this price, since they knew the price would be going down very shortly. As it now has.

New stock price low at $28.65 today. And we've yet to see shareholders who can't unload till their 3-month and 6-month lock-up periods are lifted.

I think majority of people are into Facebook, & the once in Myspace are rarely/hardly there anymore (if any, only a small percentages), if not Facebook, possibly in other sites such as myYearbook, friendsters, etc. Although, I can say 2 things about Myspace that Facebook does not have, is the ability to place a nice wall paper in the back ground that everyone can also enjoy not only the person who picked the wall paper, & the ability of a software in Myspace which you can see if your friend(s) have seen your email/messages that you sent them, etc. Facebook, does not have that capability. In Facebook, if you send them a message, & they don't reply, you will never know if they saw it, or read it at all, unless they reply back.

Leo, why do you not want to use FaceBook? or anyone else for that matter. Just curious as many of us HT folks are already on there.

Simply because I know my personality and its addictions, and I WILL spend too much time there. I'm not so worried about all the privacy concerns, as it's too late for me to pull back from all the "out there" that I've already done. I just can't allow myself to spend that much time at the computer - it will draw me from other things in life that I must focus on. (I have avoided getting a smartphone for the same reasons, though I know it works against me in a number of ways.)

Exclamation Re: Facebook Fate

I'm active on Facebook. I dislike Facebook.

I often describe it as a crappy restaurant that all my friends go to. Maybe I just don't share the same tastes in decor or cuisine, but I'll go, because the people I like hang out there. I'd rather that critical mass of real people who mean something to me amass elsewhere, but for now, stopping in regularly is a necessity.

I have friends and family with whom I can't interact EXCEPT via Facebook. It annoys me to no end.

It's a walled garden. It's a closed system that's taking everyone's comfort in being "hidden" and slowly turning it into a giant jail where everyone's naked. It's AOL 2.0. And we've been here before. The best part of the disastrous IPO is that it finally became clear that it'd actually be possible for the massive behemoth to tumble and crumble.

the privacy concerns can be taken care by your individual settings. on my page - if you aren't my "friend", you can't see anything. I have a very small friend list and I go on once a day, check my latest entries and then leave. It often takes the place of HT (psst Ron - here's a clue) and doesn't take that much time. I've gotten in contact with family members and old friends that I haven't talked to in years and its been great. You might give it a try = you can always quit if you dont like it.

Leo, I hope you reconsider. Yes, it does take a great deal of discipline to avoid wasting time on facebook, but the social networking value outweighs it by far. Let’s face it, twitter is a “celebrity wanna-be thing,” myspace is dead, and linkedin just hasn’t taken off the way the business community thought it would. Facebook is the “end all be all” network and there’s no sign of a slowdown in it’s global reach.

I am fortunate in my current employment, we aren’t allowed to use our smart phones (or have them visible) on the clock and our work computers don’t have internet access, except to certain work-related websites. Anyhow, I hope 2013 is the year you take the plunge for both facebook and smartphones. I recommend Google’s Android!

So....

you all use Facebook? or at least some of you???

I heard a commentary on that instagram that people use a lot on Facebook, that instagram uses your own photo that you take & post, & uses it for their own gain &/or some sort of advertisements.

If I am wrong, or if you have heard differently, please do say so.

There was an update in Instagram's terms of service, set to take effect in mid-January, that said IG would be allowed to use your photos for such purposes, 'though the actual intent was probably not as evil as it sounded.

There was an uproar, though, as there often is on FB, and IG changed its terms of service to something a bit more reasonable. You can read the details here.

Frankly, I never understood this craze with "Instagram." If I want to post a photo on Facebook, I'll just post it - no third-party 'app' needed. The Myspace generation is trying to "prettify" fb, with very limited success. I seriously doubt there was any real benevolence on the part of Instagram backtracking. It's cold, hard dollars and cents. Sooner, rather then later, they will figure out how to best harvest the content people are uploading for commercial gain. The Cloud isn't free.

Sometimes one can be at the right spot at the right moment and

It seems as though anything posted at facebook will be stored away from ones
