The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series in which technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn and technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Brenton and Andrew discuss some of the headwinds facing social media stocks, as well as a company that has avoided headlines despite the fact that it manages one of the largest networks of engaged users in all of Canada. There hasn't been any shortage of negative press around the Facebook IPO, and while many recent headlines relate to dubious tactics employed by underwriters during the road show, there are also bigger questions about Facebook's monetization strategies going forward. Zynga is in a different boat, but faces an extremely tough battle to continue robust user growth and reduce its Facebook revenue concentration. With the likes of Glu Mobile and Electronic Arts looking to build a larger presence in mobile gaming, that will become an increasingly difficult task. If the headwinds facing these companies have you scratching your head, Brenton discusses a company capitalizing on a large network of users, and robust data analysis, to drive some serious ROI for customers.
The era of big data has arrived.
