Mostly agree to all the points. Its hard to comment on worth of the stock, without much insight into monetization plans. But users are spending more and more time on Facebook. Theoretically, if Facebook introduces search feature as a way to mine data, I cannot see why they can't take a bite out of Google's (and others) revenue? (Ofcourse, this doesn't warrant 105bn market capitalization).
For a start, there are billions of Facebook shares, which means the Earning Per Share is going to be abysmal. Secondly, this whole social media business is like a castle built on sand. Indeed, it would not take much for large numbers of people to switch to other providers or turn off their accounts altogether (e.g. in protest). What's the worth of Facebook then?? Thirdly, Facebook's monetising value has yet to materialise, so the jury is still out. In view of the above, do you really believe Facebook to be worth more than Google, GM etc.? No way....
