The product looks like a mental health version of tobacco.

That’s why we love the stock

Edit: just read a bit of the article, don’t agree with that!

Agreed.
One reason I won’t use FB and InstaGram :wink:

I was making a joke. For an investor with no regard for ethics, this is a good thing. But, reading the article, it seems pretty messed up but not that surprising.

I’m holding my shares anyway, I don’t invest “ethically” but for gains.

I read your post again and realized what you wrote, and realise I agree :slight_smile:

I have amended my earlier reply.

In good conscience I cannot slam FB while owning their stock so don’t. It’s almost a pastime for me but sometimes they make it too easy!

I’m sure people got rich off Purdue Pharma & Philip Morris but I’ll find out ways of building wealth.

I can sit smug not having shares or an FB account of any sort :joy: Apart from the ethical issues, the only only reason I didn’t invest is because I see it one day collapsing like Friends reunited. It may be slower as it is so big but I think the dominant position will end sooner or later. Just plenty of better shares to buy in my opinion.

Facebook isn’t “facebook.com” though, it’s a corporation with many different diversified products: Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, oculus.

Found an article from 2019, Instagram is 30% of its revenues, I would image Facebook.com is around 50% and probably decreasing over time as they diversify with newer products. I’m investing in the company, not the product.

One thing that I read about Facebook that stuck with me is they always push it too far with privacy concerns, then when they receive the backlash they push it back a little bit, but still make progress. That’s how they progress.

2 steps forward and 1 step back.

Until ethics become more important in business, the fewer ethics a company has, the more competitive they advantage they have in business.

Still holding my one share:

Its true… what are people gunna do when their just sat there. They might have to actually talk to their partners.
