Is Facebook the Next MySpace?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.

John and David recently came across a Forbes article that said Facebook might be the new MySpace. The piece noted that Twitter was performing better in the mobile space than Facebook. It also implied that Facebook was no longer considered "cool." John and David were not entirely convinced by this argument. In the video, they lay out the reasons why Facebook is possibly being underestimated by journalists and analysts alike.

We lay out the pros and cons of this investment in our newest premium research report.
