The Best Way to Play the Social-Media Boom

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Chief Technology Officer Jeremy Phillips discusses topics across the investing world.

It's understandable that investors are champing at the bit to invest in social-media stocks. With daily reminders of Facebook and Twitter's importance, it was predictable that financial products would spring up to attempt to meet this demand. In the following two-minute video, Jeremy warns investors to stay away from a social-media ETF that is really social media in name only.

Facebook and other social-media companies gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
