    Is Investing in Social Media Safe?


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    Social media networks like FB and Twitter have been doing well for quite some time now. This week however, Twitter stumbled:

    "US stocks fell for the third time . . . as Twitter led a sell-off in Internet shares . . . Twitter plunged 18 per cent as about 480 million shares from insiders became eligible for sale"

    Owing to the fact that a Social Media site could become unpopular [and lose money] when a better competitor comes along I'm not sure that investing in one of them social media sites would be the wisest decisions one would make.

    All investments are risky but is investing in Social Media higher up on the ladder?

    I think that investing in Social Media is very high risk/high reward. You could end up investing in a really good start-up and have your stocks split multiple times while also increasing in price. However, the chance that it just disappears is more likely than other companies.

    I also heard that Twitter owes a lot of money to its financial backers..I think this is one of those high risk/high reward type investments.

    In Social Media the “squeaky wheel” gets the oil. You have to put yourself out there, to find people who will relate or even debate with you, depending on what you are looking for.
