A Succinct Summation of the Social Mood on Facebook

Facebook traded nearly 20% higher in early action this morning as the crowd digests the latest earnings release from the social media juggernaut. In their release, Facebook highlights $2.59 Billion in revenue — and profits of $523 Million in Q4, easily crushing analyst estimates.

And about that Instagram purchase that was roundly mocked a year ago?

All you need to know about $FB’S quarter:

Instagram user base up 100% (180 mil) year-over-year, ad pricing up 92% over the same time.

It’s clear to see Facebook is clicking on all cylinders. The StockTwits Community weighed in this morning as the market got set to open for trading:

$FB At CC they addressed teens membership. Over 1 bil monetizable members, it is all that matters. UP is path of least resistance.

Looks like a text book ‘breakaway gap’ in shares of $FB – nice volume to confirm that thesis. Higher prices likely coming

$YELP and other socials might run today– piggybacking on $FB momo

Finally, perhaps no message sums up the feeling of long investors better than this fun message:
