Newest Social Media Fad? Buying a Token Share of Facebook

This is one fad that could actually pay off eventually or if not, end up as just a reminder of better times somewhere down the road. Social group members on the Internet are planning on purchasing one or two shares of Facebook each when it IPO’s in the 18th merely for the souvenir value of the stock certificate. Put enough of these souvenir hunters together and it adds up to big blocks of stock and more money in the pockets of the present stock holders.

Whether or not Facebook stock retains its value into the future, heck whether or not Facebook itself still exists in the future, isn't of too much concern to these buyers.
