Is Facebook a Buy, Sell, or Hold?

Facebook's (NASDAQ: FB  ) stock has had quite a turnaround, from what many considered to be an IPO disaster to a current market darling. But with the stock more than doubling off its lows in recent months, is Facebook a buy today?

In this video, Motley Fool analysts Joe Tenebruso and Eric Bleeker give their take on the social-media titan. Joe believes we're going to see a mass migration of advertising dollars from TV to the Internet, particularly within the social-media space, which should benefit Facebook tremendously. And Joe thinks Facebook will continue to find new ways to monetize the treasure trove of data it collects from its massive user base. To hear Eric's thoughts on Facebook, click the video.

    My daughter thinks FB is a dead puppy. She used to love FB - she still loves puppies. Folks, think about it, what service does FB provide? Actually none. It's not "social", of anything, it's anti-social and the youth knows it. They are getting increasingly turned off as FB becomes increasingly a business tool - "Like us on Facebook". Do you know anyone who takes that seriously? Remember in 2005 when Murdoch paid $600M (or whatever) for MySpace? Do you remember MySpace?

    TMF folks are gaga over FB, but they tend to have a strong bias for internet companies. Maybe because they is one.

    I would not put so much as a nickle in this sham of business. I'm not saying you can't make money, but as a buy & hold long-term investment I think this one is very high risk. FB can collapse faster than you can imagine.

    I agree with brittle rock. FB cannot be sustained. Ask yourself, what is it that it sells to be able to pay its owners and CEO billions. They are basically paying people with money they took from other investors on the stock market. Why are you so eager at giving your money away so freely to a morphed Murdoch? Respect your money. Check officials of the company are doing with their shares. Millions sold this month of DEC 2013 alone. Beware. You've been warned.
