Facebook – You Users are the Owners
If you are considering using a company or you are using a company does it make sense to be an owner of that company? Can you imagine how a company of 900 million owners could sway the thinking of that company.
One intriguing thought is that the world has about 7 billion people with one billion of them using Facebook and that means one out of every 7 people on the earth are using Facebook. Two out of 3 in the US are using Facebook. In my mind that is something of worth.
I heard a numbers of stories of how Facebook was going to be so successful and I knew it was a large social network. I thought I would buy some of the stock when it became open to the public.
For weeks I planned on making a purchase of a few shares of stock. As the opening grew close the news media and folks around me friendsfilter said that Facebook stock purchases for the ordinary person would not be possible. It was said that the ordinary brokers could not even get those stocks. It would be the big brokers buying for their clients only.
Here is something I pulled off of a web-browser before the IPO. Just to support what I said about buying Facebook before it went public. In other words they were saying to the American public that you can’t buy Facebook stock, so they didn’t. Like so many other people one week before the IPO we stopped thinking we could buy Facebook stock. Everyone thought it would just go out of site on opening day or there would be nothing available for the users of Facebook to buy. In the next week the general public never even gave a thought to buying Facebook stock knowing they were not going to be able to anyway.
Facebook’s IPO was going to make some bankers rich, the privileged early investors money, some early employees and that’s about it. With remarks like that most families didn’t try to buy Facebook stock.
A day before the IPO the media came with all the news that GM backed out of a contract, saying that Facebook ads were not a good for them.
I think the media was the one that messed-up the large investors and Facebook. It is a wonder Facebook is selling at its current price. I think users of Facebook are now buying the shares of stock and keeping the price stable as major share holders sell of their shares. The users of Facebook should be buying stock because they are the winners of what Facebook is all about. It’s your company, the users that is Facebook.
The late start for selling on the stock market hurt the IPO and because no one thought they had a chance of buying a share of the stock, it started downward. When the major investors saw the stock volume was not going anywhere they were in panic mode.
When it started downward the media made a big mockery of Facebook’s IPO. They continue to make those remarks even today. I think this is an opportunity for the ordinary Facebook user to plan for the future. The price of the stock is affordable for the poorest Facebook user, but it won’t be for long so said some stock brokers. They are saying buy at this point. Now is your chance to get it cheap but don’t wait too long.
Who cares about advertising at this point. Users, we are the ones that made the company successful in the first place, not ads on Facebook.
If you the users of Facebook, become an owner and buy from yourselves the revenue would be automatic. Good news for any owner and the users are the owners, we just need to get in on the action. Buy Facebook it’s your company.
To buy a share of stock, go to the internet and type in How can I buy one share of Facebook stock or just ask any financial group, who sells stock. You might need to open an account.
