In this video, Motley Fool analyst Andrew Tonner takes a look at the bear perspective on Facebook . Facebook, like several other companies in what some might call the "Web 2.0 Bubble," such as Groupon or Zynga went public with a fanfare of excitement about its new, potentially disruptive business model. But it hasn't returned the revenue investors were hoping for, and shares plummeted as a result. Andrew also notes that Facebook, amazingly, may be facing some market saturation in many countries, where new user signups are slowing significantly.

After the world's most hyped IPO turned out to be a dunce, most investors probably don't even want to think about shares of Facebook. But there are things every investor needs to know about this company. We've outlined them in our newest premium research report. There's a lot more to Facebook than meets the eye, so read up on whether there is anything to "like" about it today, and we'll tell you whether we think Facebook deserves a place in your portfolio.
