Here's what we think of Facebook stock today.

Facebook's (META 1.70%) 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.
