Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) may one day be more powerful than Google if it’s able to effectively monetize its growing Rolodex of knowledge on its billion active users without alienating them. However, Zuckerberg also has a higher risk of obsolescence than Big G.
For now, the best bet has to be on Facebook having a merrier shareholder meeting next year. The stock’s valuation is still not cheap, but it’s no longer ridiculous. Facebook is just starting to monetize mobile and video monetization will inevitably follow. The next few quarters should be strong, and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) will naturally get a boost when it’s added to the S&P 500 later this year.
Zuckerberg’s probably just hoping that a better stock price brings out better questions from its investors next year.
