Facebook Shares open below IPO Price [Update]

Friday was a crazy day on Wall Street. Facebook went public and the NASDAQ trading system failed. Lot's of professional traders could not get their orders in to benefit from the pop. FB shares went out the gate with about a 13% gain. That gain fizzled within minutes to the offering price. Facebook shares closed at $38 on Friday. Today in pre-market trading FB shares are down to $36.50. I actually got saved by the NASDAQ technical issues. My order did not get executed during the first minutes of trading and I cancelled the order as soon as the share value started to drop.

Facebook has lost its "unknown" market potential. Going forward Facebook is going to be measured by revenue numbers. The share price will mostly just be driven by that. This means Facebook needs to step up its advertising game on the desktop and on mobile devices. Prepare for intruding ads.

Congratulations to Mark Zuckerberg. He got married over the weekend to long-term girlfriend Priscilla Chan.

Update:
Facebook Shares in free fall. Trading now at $33, a drop of over 13%.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
