Facebook, i was pretty blown away by what an upside stock reaction was.

Goldman sachs raised their target to $46. we saw more than four times the usual buying.

It is amazing.

It is not about the personal computer experience.

It is about mobile, tablet, smartphones.

That is where the skeptics were.

Could they monetize on a mobile space?

They promised to make facebook a mobile company.

They've a couple of new ideas in the pipeline.

They are letting marketers show their ads on their feet.

The air is ready on apps.

One analyst put it that there is demand for marketers to spend money on facebook.

Introduce the right set of products to facilitate it.

I do not use facebook that much.

I just don't have as much time as some of the younger folks out there.

The experience on mobile has been much more, in terms of the way i use it, then a traditional pc.

I cannot river the last time i logged on -- i cannot remember the last time i log on with my laptop.

It is set to overtake sales for face top -- facebook on desktop.

819 million users.

The facebook story is all about mobile.

Thank you for that.
