Many industries and businesses therein, are trying to figure out how Facebook’s recent IPO status will impact on the market at large.
What does Facebook IPO mean for business?
According to an article on WWD there’s big talk around where Facebook’s focus will lie in times to come. Options range from further developments in its open-graph technology, to further engagement, to mobile innovations to fuel brand partners’ brick-and-mortar shopping experience or improving client account management services for companies. Industry professionals seem to think that Facebook will become more aggressive in pushing its advertising model, stirring even greater competition with traditional media companies.
If you can’t beat them, join them
Yet despite all the crazy publicity, unexpected share prices, and all the other mass hysteria surrounding Facebook IPO, personally I’m one who admires the lengths this company has gone to; from where it started and where it is now, yet most impressively, the massive impact (and change) Facebook has had on the communication industry as we know it.
Life without Facebook will never be the same. Whether that’s a good or a bad thing is up to you to decide.
