San Francisco, CA  11/6/2012 (BasicsMedia)  —  FaceBook (NASDAQ:FB): 50 Million Shares Per Day and counting..now i understand why the Nasdaq endured the pain of negative publicity..it is because of the huge volume FB shares are generating.  50 million of anything is big!!…even at whatever mili-cent the exchange is getting – multiplied times 50 million per day – add’s up to something.  You have so many people watching this stock, I should just write about FaceBook …..but we must tear ourselves away from any myopic view of markets or technology and look at other stocks moving when the big dog moves, some will win and some will lose.  If you don’t believe me, go do some research on a company called Digital Equipment (NYSE:DEC).

The Social Media sub-sector of  Tech will be long -footed…in that… the footprint FB makes in monetizing users will cast a large shadow on every other stock in it’s sub sector…when FB wag’s its tail (moves 5% up or down) the rest of the space will overreact on zero news, causing valuation confusion for long periods of time.

Below is a quick recap of Social Media Stock News staying with the above theme.

 

Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) COO Sheryl Sandberg was among several company executives that revealed share sales late Friday, now since lock-up expirations are expiring. Sandberg sold 352,904 Facebook shares at prices from $20.79 to $21.10. Sandberg continues to own more than 18 million Facebook shares, the regulatory filing reports.  This is part of normal management liquidation.

 

LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD) beat Wall Street’s expectations in its Q3 results, which solidifies its status as an investor favorite when other Internet companies have failed. The professional networking company showed a profit during Q3, which reverses a loss during the same period the previous year as revenue increased more quickly than Wall Street expected.   

Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) has cut  FishVille andTreasure Isle along with others as a part of its plan to downsize, and both games have been given a month to live. Players were offered a bonus package if they move onto another Zynga game, specificallyCastlevilleChefvilleFarmville 2Mafia Wars, or Yoville. It is unclear if other games will be affected, but it can be inferred that the games players were advised to move to are safe for the time.

Yelp (NYSE:YELP): Some of the problems with Apple Maps were due to information that the computer giant gained from Yelp which is many times a death knell.  Groupon (NASDAQ:GRPN) is scheduled to file its Q3 earnings on Nov. 8, causing some to speculate that a recent slump could be a result of Hurricane Sandy.
