Facebook Poll : 36% of you believe that the value will go down

We recently announced a Facebook poll on Pluggd.in and here is what our readers think about it:

facebook_poll_result

– Only ~13% believe that the value will go up by 100% from its IPO price

– 23.5% believe that the value will go up by 20-50% in a year timeframe.

– ~26% seem to believe that the value will go down by 20-50%

– 10% believe it to be much lower than the IPO price.

– 27.3% is not at all interested in Facebook IPO hoopla- they are off to build their own startup!

In short, ~38% believe that the stock price will go up., while 36% think otherwise.

What’s your opinion? Is the hoopla around Facebook IPO justified?

And  in this context – here’s a funny one – a spoofed “letter from Mark Zuckerberg” – doing the rounds:

“For years, you’ve wasted your time on Facebook.  Now here’s your chance to waste your money on it, too.

Tomorrow is Facebook’s IPO, and I know what some of you are thinking.  How will Facebook be any different from the dot-com bubble of the early 2000’s?

….”

Update

Facebook’s IPO stock price is being reported at $38. Which means that over a third believe it’ll be in the $19-$20 range in a year’s time!! All we can do, of course, is wait and watch.
