In this edition of The Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Brendan Mathews take a question from a reader who asks, "How do you see Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) stock? As a good stock to own or buy?"

Jason says that while it took a little while for him to warm up to Facebook the stock, he sees a number of reasons why it should be an attractive long-term holding for investors today. Between the large and growing market opportunity, a young and hungry founder/leader and continued focus on engagement, Facebook appears to be setting itself up for long-term success and unless the story changes significantly investors should plan on owning shares in the company over the next 10 to possibly even 20 years.
