A New Growth Area for Facebook?

The recent mHealth Summit near Washington, D.C. highlighted dozens of investing ideas in an intriguing area: games and health care. Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) and Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) will automatically benefit, as these games are played on iOS or Android devices. Likewise, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) and Nintendo are getting some tailwinds with their Xbox and Wii consoles.

One surprising winner in the space may be Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) . In the video below, Motley Fool analyst Rex Moore speaks with the founder of the Games for Health Project about the role of Facebook and other social networks in this growing industry.

Besides gaming and health, there are other things every investor needs to know about Facebook. We've outlined them in our newest premium research report. There's a lot more to this company than meets the eye, so read up on whether there is anything to "like" about it today, and we'll tell you whether we think Facebook deserves a place in your portfolio. Access your report by clicking here.
