Whom Will Facebook Acquire Next?

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 around the investing world.

Facebook's first weeks as a public company have been memorable for all the wrong reasons. The stock is down significantly since its IPO as the realities of slowing revenue growth have eaten away at the company's premium valuation. Facebook needs to find new avenues of growth if it wants shares to head north. The company is faced with a difficult task: It needs to drive revenue growth without alienating its users. In the following video, Brenton and Andrew discuss a couple of acquisitions Facebook could make that would assist in driving top-line growth while still protecting its all-important user experience.

Facebook recently became the largest company ever to IPO. Yet all the buzz around this social-media monster could prove off-base, as Facebook has deep problems converting its millions of members to revenue. We've created a new report, "Forget Facebook -- Here's the Tech IPO You Should Be Buying," that details a much better social-media stock that has a longer runway for growth than Facebook. The report won't be available forever, so click here to get access today -- it's totally free.
