Ok so FB stock dropping like crazy. How are the staff taking it? Staying focused on work. Or was today a wast of a workday.

    It's back to where it was 2 months ago, so it obviously sucks but it's not like it everyone is freaking out. I overheard a coworker jokingly say that he'd have to wait another quarter to get that yacht he's been eyeing now

      Don’t drink too much Amazon coolaid. Touching every market doesn’t mean it will succeed in every market. The only reason the stock going bonkers because of they decided to report AWS revenue separately

      Exactly. You are right my man.

      But it also means that failing in one market doesn’t tank the whole company. Facebook is diversified but in a very narrow way — a lot of users of switching from FB to WhatsApp and Instagram, which are still FB. What is unclear is whether those services can make money. Amazon has created an entire computing utility industry, huge retail footprint, growing media services, smart home and devices, and its ad business is exploding as companies realized a search on Amazon is substantially more valuable in ROI than Google or Facebook.

      I’m not drinking Koolaid. I hate Amazon. It’s a Death Star company. Want to refer me to Netflix? I love your company.

      But Amazon is positioned to win. It could fail in retail, which is unimaginable, and still be a wildly successful tech company. If Facebook fails in social media, then what?

      PS - They didn’t decide to break out AWS. Ernst & Young made them because it exceeded the threshold of materiality required to be broken out separately in financials. Amazon is very private, and would much prefer to NOT report that information to its competitors. Keep in mind Amazon originally priced AWS services so low that no one thought it could make money to scare competitors away. By the time competitors took notice, Amazon already had 90% of the market share.

    I'd be pissed if my options just hit and I couldn't get refreshers. Otherwise, just another day.

      This is interesting, but I'm clueless as to how it works - what options/refreshers time frame would be bad for Facebook employees today? Thanks.
