I am sure at this point along you have all heard one thing or another about Facebook’s IPO. It has been a rumor for a little over 3 years now. In my opinion the company waited for the perfect time to go public. Not only does one in ten human beings have a Facebook, the companies story was released as a block-buster movie only years after it began.
Current reports have estimated that the company could rise up to 104 billion dollars. And while that is great for Facebook, my question is – will the stock hold its value? Ever since the day that Facebook topped MySpace as the world’s most popular social networking website, we have herd predictions about how it is doomed to the same demise. If so, could Facebook end up selling for a wimpy $32 million? Who Knows?
Another important factor to note is Google Plus. While most people now think that G+ is another one of Google flops, I feel differentt. See unlike Facebook, Google has the time and resources to focus on future goals. While G+ maybe is not so popular with the current Facebook crazed teenaged crowd, it is building its own fan base.
Google Plus is incredible when it comes to online safety. And who cares more about online predators than parents? With social media becoming almost a necessity in modern day life, parents are looking for a safe and fun social network for their children. Google Plus is suited for them.
But see here is the genius in the plan… not to long from today those children will grow up and be the new trend setters.
However, on the other hand is Facebook just too LARGE to flop? Everyone is already on Facebook. Why would people look anywhere else? Only time will tell this story. But in my personal opinion, and I am not a financial expert by any means, it wouldn’t hurt to buy the stock and sell it possibly a year or two from now.
