I-t came up conversationally, but I believe Im the only person at my company-to have first hand experience as an user of Facebook.com. It had been kind of interesting to have all these online advertising professionals asking me all about the web site everyone found in school. Didnt they obtain the memo? Im new. I should be asking the questions around here. The subject of Facebook.com is an interesting one thats worth a closer look.
Without question 2005 was the year of MySpace. Its difficult to trust that even the most positive of the billionaires lackeys would have predicted that new order would more than quadruple its reach in just a matter of weeks, before Rupert Murdochs $580 million social media enterprise took the online world by storm. With 23.5 million page views by February, MySpace became the second most trafficked site online.
Murdochs success normally created buying interest in any such thing deemed o-nline social media. One proposed deal in March 2006, was Viacoms failed $750 million bid for Facebook.com, the phenomenon began by wunderkind Mark Zuckerberg. After Facebook.com declined the offer, its founders pegged Facebook.coms worth at two million dollars. Perhaps the amazing sparks from MySpaces success has blinded Facebook.com to the flip-side reality of Friendsters paradise lost. Theres an actual chance Face-book will not see a present this nice again.
Facebook.com is actually a web-based channel of communication for college students and high schoolers. To compare more, consider having a peep at: call of duty advanced warfare. For its valued reach Zuckerberg and his staff of Harvard dropouts (taking their cue from Bill Gates, no doubt) must be looking for Google-sized compensation, but the two billion dollar figure is arbitrary and difficult to justify. Perhaps Face-book is emboldened by their own smart decision in perhaps not attempting to sell to Yahoo for $15 million in 2004.
Zuckerberg was probably trying to establish a market value for his creation, not an unwise proceed the face of things. But, Viacoms offer wasn't by any stretch of the imagination pocket change and how many agencies that can and will increase the quote Face-book already got is finite.
Facebooks traffic figures, as called on Alexa.com, over the last 90 days aren't encouraging; that is, if the purpose is always to catch more and better buy-out estimates. Th
