Facebook IPO... A good option or not?

Initial public offerings often capture the public's attention, but they're not always good investments. A dollar invested in’s 1997 IPO would today be worth about $140. 

Facebook’s IPO would be the biggest ever by an Internet or technology company. The portal have the 800+ million user around the globe but still many of the emerging countries are not being counted in the league namely China; being the most populated country runs their own alternative to Facebook same with Russia. 

The uncertainty of the Facebook IPO is very much high because the average age user of the Facebook is 35 and we are only talking about the users here and it is not confirmed that those users will be interested in buying the stock of Facebook because it is used for fun in the emerging markets. 

My opinion over the Facebook initial public offering is that it is not a strong company as Google and it is like a bubble which is playing its card on the usage per user. Now, even the users are not comfortable with the policy they have privacy protection which gives an other turn to the Facebook company itself.
