Keeping a profile and interacting with users is not free but bears an additional cost ... IE: you have to pay some people to interact with n users or you (as CEO/owner whatever) have to pay attention to it by yourself (implicit cost).user00 wrote:The companies are discovering that advertising campaigns on FB don't pay back. You could stay there to watch and monitor brand prestige and update events, but keeping a profile and maintaining relations is free, it doesn't generate incomes and if you start charging for being on FB maybe the users leave you. Finally, they have planned to go public, if the incomes decline, the stock price will decline and the financial sector won’t support them any longer. Does it sound familiar? Doesn't it look like the .com bubble?
About the stock ... we cannot monitor it in a reliable way without an IPO .
