Something smells terribly fishy with FB. Why do they need to sell that many preferred shares if they're turning a profit? It's not like a social network site needs that much capital.

My personnal bearishness on just about everything "social-networky" aside, there seems to be something wrong here. And looking at the ads posted on my personnal facebook page, I think either their ad-display algorithm is really bad (I doubt it) or they have a huge lack of choice in which ads to show. On my profile I'm 65 years old married from UK and they keep trying to match me with barely-legal teens from russia or the middle east, or helping me with my canadian tax return. Somehow I'm not that interested.

Facebook would do well to take a page from Mark Cuban's playbook.  If someone gives you $6.5 billion for the business you founded, you'd probably be wise to take it and diversify.

That's kind of the punchline here. While you can pretend that an expensive, small investment -- extrapolated to the entire company -- represnts what it would cost to buy the whole Magilla, I highly doubt anyone would shell out $6.5 billion to get all of Facebook. What would you get for your $6.5 billion?

Underpants. Lots of underpants.
