Facebook is a fad. As soon as the new wears off it will become worthless as many other fads have become. If you buy in, be prepared to lose your money.

If people choose to buy, be sure to sell immediately. Otherwise, it is unlikely to work in your favor.

When did you say to sell?

"Shares of Facebook fell as low as $33 today, more than 13% below where the shares were when they went public last Friday."

Only with the money that I had been planning to burn.

Nah, burning it will be a lot more fun.

Stocks = High stake rich person gambling.. I'd rather go play poker at the boats. Also I'd like to know where the other two percent went?

No, I don't think that stocks fit that definition at all, at least not for a wise investor. Read my posting here for investment advice:

Passing on FB. Bought 5 shares (all I could afford) of Google at just over $400. So far, so good. http://money.cnn.com/quote/quote.html?symb=GOOG

The only reason FB closed above its IPO price was because it was artificially propped up by underwriter Morgan Stanley, according to the 'Wall Street Journal'. Otherwise, it would have dropped on its very first day.

For details, look at the link on my posting below.
