Who has covered facebook as well.

There was a study that came out that said they spoke has lost 80% of its users.

There is this teen question.

They have to address that on the call.

Our questions on how that will work.

People are dying for more information.

The company mention something new like that in an earnings call, everyone sort of wonders why.

He just said that has been a little less engagement a young -- among younger teens.

Do you use facebook a lot?

I can't imagine not using facebook.

I cannot imagine what the undocumented movement would be without facebook.

Facebook or twitter?

Enters the community, facebook.

But twitter, you cannot be a journalist and not be on twitter.

When they drop the teebnn bomb, of course they will drop usage in teens.

Instagram is growing like crazy since it was acquired by facebook.

People have mixed opinions about instagram adding advertising to their platform.

There was a lot of comments on those ads like what is this doing in my feed?

People learned except those things and move on.

They want instagram as a service.
