Tomahawk, WI 04/04/2014 (Basicsmedia) – How big can Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) grow? Is Facebook past its peak? As game developers and Kickstarter donors protested Facebook’s $2 billion purchase of virtual reality headset maker Oculus VR, the future for Facebook looks uncertain.

Different Views

There is a divergence of views about whether Facebook’s bottom-line will keep growing or whether it will find it tough to justify the premiums the FB stock still commands.

The naysayers point to the slowdown in the growth of Facebook users in comparison to other social media platforms. However, even Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has its share of analysts who claim the company has stopped innovating and is about to perish. But of course, Apple continues to be a hugely profitable enterprise that pulls in most of the smartphone profits generated by the high end mobile handset manufacturers.

Facebook Still The King

Of course, raw numbers of Facebook users has slowed down since almost everybody who is on the internet is also in Facebook. It remains the No. 1 social media platform by far. Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) can only dream of having a billion people use their social media offerings.

But as long as Facebook has the kind of numbers of people who log into Facebook, Facebook is well-placed to make good money from advertisers.

Even Google had skeptics during its early years. Now, with acquisitions following one after another — Android and YouTube being only two of the most prominent and profitable ones out of about 150 acquisitions in total — Google has continued to grow and roll out new offerings and move into entirely new business domains.

Similarly, Facebook will also find ways to monetize its acquisitions such as WhatsApp. Facebook is already buying up robotics and drone making companies. Something is cooking in the minds of Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg and others who are in charge of strategy for Facebook.

As millions of young adolescents get their hands on their first smartphone in countries as diverse as China, India and Brazil, expect Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s user base to keep growing. More users will attract more advertisers to Facebook which will lead to more revenue and profits for FB.
