I was planning to invest in facebook but after warren buffet came out with a statement that he wont be investing, I am having second thoughts.

Groupon is a failure after it went public will the same happen with facebook?

    If I had the money to burn, I would like to buy a little just for fun, but at this point, it would just be a gamble for me. I think the IPO will be successful, but it may include a lot of speculators who will artificially drive up the price in the short run.

    I wouldn't go for broke on it, but it might be fun to toss a few dollars into the mix.

      I think Facebook has too many users and is too well-integrated into our daily lives to write it off like Groupon or other failures. If people were abandoning it in droves, I would have second thoughts. I think the main risk to Facebook is posed from new regulations or Internet policies that may affect how people use the Internet. At the moment, I think it is on decent footing to do well.

      I think his reluctant posture regarding the IPO has to do with the excessive hype circulating around it. Too many average Joes thinking they're going to make some money.

        Glad I didn't have the money after all. You nay-swayers have been proven right on all counts, so I must swallow my pride and admit defeat. HOWEVER, in the long term, I think Facebook has value and will grow, unless government restrictions squeeze more and more people offline.

    I wouldn't base your investment advise entirely on what Warren Buffet says. I think I read an article saying he was short silver a few years before it retouched its all-time high last year. That said, I'm also not saying you should go out and buy Facebook, necessarily. I'd be hesitant to put a lot of money into it, just because the valuations that are being thrown around are so many multiples of earnings. You need to look at what's best for you and do your own due diligence.

      Warren buffett is called the oracle of investment arena there must be something to it. Even thou I am not really worried about what buffett said, I as an investor try to stay clear from anything that is virtual.

      I may think about it once United states is out of recession and I feel more secure about the market.

        The information age is here. You can avoid it and miss out on once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, or you can wake up and take advantage of this incredible moment. I will, and I will reap the rewards.

    Told you guys a very meek increase for all the hype around Facebook. I don't think Facebook will do well the people who were connected with it made there money. 

    It looks like the general users are showing Facebook the middle finger just like Facebook did to it's users.

    Oh well we will have to see what happens next.

    After today's embarrassing opening... I am going to wait before I buy. I don't know what will happen next week but the predictions are bleak. Buying into virtual is never a good idea.

    I would never invest in stocks ( or atleast go long on it) that is based on an industry of frivoulous people's whim's and fancies. I would rather play conservative and buy infrastructure stocks or invest in an company which I know is not completely dependent on just people's wish.
