Facebook, Inc.
An SI Board Since January 2012
Posts SubjectMarks Bans Symbol
1786 183 0 FB
Emcee:  Glenn Petersen Type:  Moderated
I have created this board for the purpose of discussing Facebook’s stock price, financial prospects and actual results, the merits of its business model, the Facebook experience and social networking websites in general (a subject of particular interest to me). It is neither a Bulls nor a Bears board and all opinions are welcome. Hopefully, we can avoid the “to the moon” and “Facebook sucks” commentary.

The board is moderated and my expectation is that everyone will be civil to one another. Pretend that your mother is reading the board and that she knows your virtual handle. No name calling and please avoid engaging in political commentary unless it has a specific bearing on Facebook. We all recognize that Facebook operates in a highly political environment.

While I do not normally like to “moderate” my boards, I will ban people if I feel that it is warranted. Depending on the nature of the infraction and whether or not it is a serial event, the bans may be temporary or permanent. You are free to appeal your ban with a PM to me. I never put anyone on Ignore.

The Facebook IPO was an iconic event, and whether or not the company prospers in the long run or crashes in flames, the ride should be interesting

Facebook went public on May 18, 2012 at $39, which valued the company at $104 billion, the largest valuation to date for a newly public company.
