Shelly Palmer Radio Report – September 12, 2012

[wpaudio url=”″ text=”Click to play … ” dl=”0″]

On Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg made his first public appearance since Facebook’s IPO.  Zuckerberg was interviewed at the TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco, where he faced questions about his company’s strategy for generating revenue, the rocky debut of its stock and whether or not there will be a Facebook phone. Zuckerberg openly admitted that there have been some missteps, and expressed disappointment about the stock’s share price. But overall he seemed happy with Facebook’s products and services and the path that the company is on.  He said he sees mobile as a huge opportunity, a narrative that the company has been pushing for the past few months, since unveiling Sponsored Stories. Facebook reports that Sponsored Stories have been bringing in 1 million dollars a day, but the company has yet to come up with a big money maker. And about that Facebook phone? Don’t expect one any time soon. Maybe Zuckerberg should make public appearances more often – Facebook’s stock price rose 3% after the interview.
