Is anyone getting in on this in any way?  I have an order to purchase 5 shares.  It doesn't start trading until 11 am, though.

 I heard a little bit about it but I'm really not interested and don't know enough about any of that to know how to do it if I wanted to.

I don't do single stocks - here's why I wouldn't do FB: as an Internet social networking site, it is a very volatile market. If something better or cooler comes out, FB could go the way of Myspace. Remember how awesome Myspace was? See how completely useless it is now? Things like this are too risky and volatile for my money.

I plan on selling when it reaches a certain point, probably today.  But I want a piece of it for a short time.  To me, it is not a long term investment.

Not interested... I am not on Facebook for a lot of reasons,

I keep hoping it will go away.  Not looking likely, but don't see the stocks soaring either.

I'd like to get in on it, but I can't afford to for one then I agree it could go just like this site could go. How long was Myspace out there anyway?

I heard it wasn't a good investment.  FB is already too popular so the price is high and not likely to get much higher.
