  1. This amateur’s opinion:

    In the sh0rt run: who knows

    In the long run: lower….

  2. Facebook is worth around $15 – $21. Only LNKD will survive, and oddly enough, Yelp. The location-based mapping using Yelp is a competitive edge.

    Facebook will disappear within 5 years, but its shares will rally to 40 or 50 (or 60 or 70!) well-before that happens.

    Facebook is irreplaceable the social medium for hundreds of millions of people. There are a million potential non-advertising revenue streams. The company is going to grow considerably, although I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of the near-term growth is built in the stock price (and then some).
