Are You Planning On Buying Facebook Stock Today?

Shares in the most popular social media company go on sale today to the general public.

There's much advice out there regarding Facebook shares going on sale today after it set its initial public offering stock price at $38 per share.

Some say you shouldn't buy it today. Others advise to buy early and as much as you can. While still others warn the market is rigged against small investors.

So what are your plans? Does this remind you of the late '90s? Please let us know by taking this poll and commenting below.

There is no "yes or no" single answer that applies to all people. Consider your own personal circumstances and risk appetite before investing in anything, especially a stock that has no trading history.

^^agree. One of FB's primary revenue streams is advertising. Think about how many times you've clicked on an ad while on FB. Have you ever? Probably not. Ask the person to your right and left. Have they? Probably not. If I spent money advertising on a site that didn't generate new leads, I wouldn't advertise for long. Do yourself a favor, if you're able to afford to invest (and lose) in the stock market, choose a company that has a proven track record. Better yet, buy a mutual fund and forget you own it for a couple years. G'day
