re: Facebook's Tech-Snarled IPO: What We Know
While folks are complaining about the drop in FB on opening day (and subsequently) this is really not at all unusual. Look at Vonage, Odessy Marine and many others and see what happened to them in the first week or so. In comparison FB is doing rather well. I invested in more loser IPOs over the years, more than winners, but the winners won big! IPOs are very risky, not something for the week of heart or, generally, for the short-term profit.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
