So that guy Severin, played by Andrew Garfield in Social Network, renounced his US citizenship in order to pay less in taxes on his big Facebook IPO windfall.

Here's how it works: you'll get an option of highlighting a status message beside the "like" and "comment" options by a status box. If you choose the option, a pop-up window appears, asking for a payment. Payments must be made with a credit card or PayPal -- no virtual Currency Credits accepted.



During the test period, prices will vary -- from free to $2 -- as Facebook feels up its members to find the best price point for the feature.

Posts that you highlight will appear higher in news feeds, stay visible longer, and appear to more friends and subscribers. Otherwise, they won't stand out from other messages in a friend's news feed so it won't be obvious that you're hooking for eyeballs.

The listen-to-me-I-paid-for-this feature stems from recent analyses that show that only 12 percent of a member's friends actually see their status updates. By the way, businesses don't do much better on the social network. Only 16 percent of their posts are seen by their followers.

That's odd, because I never have a problem seeing posts on my facebook wall. I've tweaked my Facebook wall quite a bit though and I know if you don't have the settings right posts might not show up.

I am sure your posts are showing up at the top of your page, and I remember you said you preferred writing stuff about yourself and not other people.
So, I am sure you get satisfaction, when you see your own posts.

No, I meant the posts of the people I intend to follow. Local businesses, friends, etc. If I haven't seen someone in awhile I check their page just in case and my main wall is almost always up to date on what others are posting.

So, that's how it works, huh? Bringing new meaning to the term "social media".

Pure business brilliance, use the US population to earn billions and retire to Singapore where you do not pay any capital gain taxes.

This FB stock is a loser for investors.

Zuckerberg's greed and vanity got the best of him. They should have priced this at the 30-32 dollar range.



40 minutes to close and it is at 38.31 up 31 cents.

SEC to probe Nasdaq following glitches in Facebook IPO - latimes.com

opened at 42, late???

shot up to 45, then kept going down, the last half hour was at 38.00- 38.02 range, it very easily could have been a broken IPO, closing below open price,
but Morgan Stanly jumped in and bought heavy, to have it close around 38.20

not saying this is a fraud, a ponzi scheme. but it certainly is not above board.

Facebook's stock price will definitely go up for a substantial long period of time since its IPO. Many investors have expressed the concern of the company's future and potential revenue in the long run, any kind of technological advantage over social networking can easily kill the company in the long run.

Sure, we are talking in the long term but financial endeavors within Facebook are not always necessarily categorized as long-term investments. $16 billion dollars raised so far is nothing compared to giants like Google, Microsoft or eBay.

Internet attention span, and general attention span, is very short lived these days. Facebook is overexposed and people will eventually tire of it and want the next best thing. The only people who will get richer from it are Zuckerberg (and now Mrs. Z), Facebook employees and founders, and Bono and friends/partners. No average investor ever will.

I have owned stocks for some time now.

I do get some decent dividend income. I am not all that smart of an investor.

But Facebook is/ has always been an empty suit.

Facebook stock falls 11 percent in second trading day - CSMonitor.com


Anyone that bought a pet rock, is smarter than people that bought FB at the IPO.
