The Social IPO: To Buy Facebook Shares, or Not to Buy


24 hours to the largest IPO ever .
A buzz has disturbed my Twitter and email accounts with talk of the imminent Facebook IPO.  Everyone is trying to determine whether this is a good investment.  In previous posts, I’ve spoken about how Facebook users will soon be buying shares in the company for as low as $10 and the sudden appearance of Facebook advertisements across the web right before their IPO (tentatively scheduled for this Friday, May 18th.)
I’d like to sort through some of the opinions floating around out there on this IPO, so let’s review those who recommend buying and those who caution against it.
PROs say: Buy Facebook

CONs say: Sit Back
