Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook Stock PLUMMETS

Tough morning for The Zuck -- after a lackluster debut ... Facebook stock is sinking like a stone this morning ... down more than 11% from its opening price.

As of 7:32 AM PDT ... FB had fallen to $33.97 per share ... down $4.26 from its closing price on Friday.

According to MSN.com, the stock was down as much as 14% earlier in the morning.

FYI -- Facebook debuted at $38-per-share ... and many hoped it would explode. It didn't.

Of course, we're still a long way from the closing bell ... and a lot could happen -- good or bad.

Stay tuned ...

I love the amount of hate for FB in these posts. If only everybody felt the same way and that stupid fad would die already.

Employees and execs of FB received the stock as incentive or bonus prior to the stock going public. So whatever the price is, they are making money. For people that bought hours after the ipo, you better hang on to it for a while. Problem with FB is that it's already as large as it's going to get or close to it. It would be different it was just a new startup.

First of all is his wife 40? She looks old.

Karma; Zuch gives away our information like candy and spends millions fighting laws protecting our information.

He got his money so he doesnt' care, but FB's best days are behind them.

Here's a thought: the Kardashians became popular at about the same time Facebook started taking over social media. Coincidence?

Both are style over substance.
Both are the result of Public relations.
Both market themselves way above their actual value.
And in both cases, there is an army of uneducated morons willing to promote them.

Different Rules Apply    

Maybe they all got a little too greedy. The ads are absolutely ridiculous on my FB page. My husband has stopped using his and if they enforce the "timeline" garbage, I will be off it too. I realize it is an ad server at heart, but they are pushing the "free" customers away that actually helped establish it in the first place. Greed infects and ruins most things these days.

Easy explanation. Facebook ads sucks. I put an ad with a $50 budget. My money was gone within 8 hrs, and I never got one phone call. At least google ads you see some results.

It's that defector guy's fault. In "The Social Network," he came off as petulant, self-absorbed and lacking in vision, now he announces that he's going to relinquish citizenship right b4 the IPO. Who wants to back someone like that? With "co-founders" like that, who needs enemies.

That said, IMO, Facebook is $$. I'm tired of blogs that give idi@ts a platform to disperse their bile. At least with facebook and twiiter, I decide who I want input from. Facebook is more time consuming and geared toward sharing/archiving pictures and vidoes and twitter is more for quick updates. I like both and I think they'll both be around for a while. I like Mark Z because he's a genius without being an arrogant ingrate. That Eduardo S. guy is just lucky that he was at Harvard with enough $$ to be able to help out a gifted genius. Don't know what he wanted, but obviously it wasn't to be a friend.

I bet most of you that have something negative to say about mark are still using HIS website. He is just 28 and already a billionaire so you all can stop hating. He married a doctor so no matter what he can never be broke just call them the new jay z and beyonce:)
