The conversation then moves towards Bubba lamenting how he did not buy Facebook when the stock was still trading in the mid twenty dollar range. He solicits Angie’s opinion as to what she thinks continues to drive Facebook’s stock price ever higher in the market. She comments that the business model being utilized by Facebook is to continually roll out new products and enhace existing tools within their social media suite.
