They are excited that many more people "click through" on their sponsored stories. What they won't tell you is that right now most people do not realise they are clicking on a "sponsored story" AKA ADVERTISEMENT !!

Also a click through does not by any means constitute revenue for the advertiser. It is only a matter of time before the advertisers realise they get no return and will move onto the next thing - Path or Pinterest maybe.

How many of you who pay for data plans on your phones want your data allowance eaten up by Ads?

This is a dumb recommendation. The business model still doesn't make any sense. And the stock is 15% up from it's low. Anyone buying now will probably lose money.
