When Facebook went public, I bought some.

This was to mixed reviews from some of my advisors and friends. Some thought I was banking on people clicking 'Add Friend' for the rest of their lives, and doubted it would happen, so they thought I was nuts. Financial advisers thought it was a small risk that could pay off over the long term.

I take what my advisers say very seriously. Then, I make my own decisions. :)

Facebook recently announced it would acquire a virtual reality company.

Oculus RV made a big splash with their virtual reality headset at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year, and Facebook is really taking notice.
