Why Facebook Is A Good Long-Term Investment Option

Facebook is a great long-term investment option, however you may be wondering why would I want to invest any money in a company that just shows me photos, funny memes and a timeline.  The answer is that Facebook as a company is much more complex and visionary than the surface of Facebook.  This post will show you why Facebook is a good long-term investment.

Facebook Has Great Leadership – Mark Zuckerberg

When buying stock for the long-term, you need to remember you’re not purchasing a stock, but investing in the performance of an actual company.  One of the best ways to determine if a company will succeed or fail is to look at who is actually leading the company.  In the case of Facebook, the leader and visionary is Mark Zuckerberg.

Zuck has had a vision since the beginning…

The beautiful thing about Facebook’s leadership is that you have the single visionary, the guy who started it all and who has the complete vision for the future – Mark Zuckerberg.  This guy is REALLY SMART, and he knows what he wants his company to become – he has a vision.

When you have visionary leaders like Mark Zuckerberg, the busness continues to innovate, adapt and grow through acquisitions that fit the overall vision.  I believe in Mark Zuckerberg and I believe in Facebook.

Facebook Is Positioning Themselves for 5-10 years from now

One way to determine if Facebook is a good long-term investment is to see how they are spending their money, what they’re spending it on and determine their vision for the future.  Sure Facebook is spending a TON of money right now, but I feel they are spending it in the correct places.

WhatsApp Purchase

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS – I’m sure Facebook wants to learn some things from WhatsApp in order to bolster it’s own Facebook Messenger.

Oculus VR Purchase

On the surface, one would wonder why Facebook would purchase a virtual reality company, but when you read the memo from Zuckerberg, you quickly realize how visionary he is…

But this is just the start. After games, we’re going to make Oculus a platform for many other experiences. Imagine enjoying a court side seat at a game, studying in a classroom of students and teachers all over the world or consulting with a doctor face-to-face — just by putting on goggles in your home.

This is really a new communication platform. By feeling truly present, you can share unbounded spaces and experiences with the people in your life. Imagine sharing not just moments with your friends online, but entire experiences and adventures.

WOW!

I don’t believe Facebook is going anywhere.  I believe in Zuckerberg, his vision and that the best is yet to come for Facebook.
