Study: Twitter Sentiment Mirrored Facebook’s Stock Price Today

datasift_suitcase

Facebook’s IPO was obviously the single most discussed topic on Twitter today. The good folks over at social media data platform DataSift monitored what Twitter users were saying about the IPO throughout the day and came up with some interesting conclusions. Turns out, the ups and downs of how Twitter’s users felt about the stock pretty much mirrored the price of Facebook’s stock as the day progressed.

Basically, DataSift notes, every time the volume of negative chatter on Twitter increased, Facebook’s stock price dropped within 20 minutes. “So if people had traded based on signals today to buy/sell Facebook stock,” the company told us,”they might have done quite well.”

To create this graph, DataSift recorded 95,019 interactions from 58,665 authors over a period of 6 hours. Most interactions, of course, took place right during the early hours after Facebook’s stock started trading (and took an immediate dive from $42 closer to $38). The company also saw a second and much smaller uptick in interactions toward the end of the day as well.

For the most part, of course, this is just a fun exercise in tracking Twitter data. It’s worth noting, though, that quite a few recent studies that looked into the connection between Twitter posts and stock prices found that there is at least a slight correlation between Twitter sentiment and volume and stock prices.

You can find a bit more of DataSift’s data, which also takes a closer look at the total volume of posts about the Facebook IPO, here.

Facebook Is Going To Be Even More Annoying Now That It’s Public [Facebook]

Facebook is public now. And that means you're going public too. Facebook has to make you share more. It has to make you expose more of yourself. It has to do all those deeply creepy things it's already doing, but more more more. It is going to sell you to advertisers, to shareholders, to anyone it can. More »

Facebook IPO is official: $38 per share, on sale tomorrow under ticker symbol ‘FB’

facebook paid

We largely steer clear of companies going public here at Engadget, but Facebook and its zillions of users warrants an atypical tip of the hat. The outfit has announced that starting tomorrow, 421,233,615 shares of its common stock will be up for grabs at a price to the public of $38 per share. It'll trade on the NASDAQ under the symbol "FB," with the outfit offering 180,000,000 shares of Class A common stock and selling stockholders offering 241,233,615 shares of Class A common stock. Closing of the offering is expected to occur on May 22nd, subject to "customary closing conditions." And with that, we'd like to congratulate a plethora of new billionaires on... well, being billionaires. Don't work too hard, guys and girls.

Celebratory video is after the break.

Facebook increases IPO size by 25%

Facebook IPO

Just two days before its initial public offering, Facebook has increased the number of shares it will offer by 25%. The social networking giant will now offer 421 million shares to investors, 83.8 million shares more than it had originally planned to make available. Facebook is looking to price its stock between $34 and $38 per share, potentially allowing the company to raise more than $16 billion, making it the largest technology IPO and third-largest of all time behind Visa and GM. Fortune notes that the share increase will not affect Facebook’s valuation, however, as the extra shares are being reallocated out of the company’s existing share count. Facebook will be listed on the NASDAQ under ticker symbol FB.

Stock Photography Service Shutterstock Files For IPO, Plans To Raise Up To $115 Million

shutterstock_logo

The online stock photography service Shutterstock filed its plans for an initial public offering today. The company plans to list its stock on the New York Stock Exchange. The number of shares to be offered and the price range for the offering haven’t been decided yet, but the company’s S-1 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) notes that it plans to raise around $115 million through this IPO. That’s the number Shutterstock used to estimate its filing fees with the SEC, though, so the actual size of the IPO could still turn out to be different.

Shutterstock reported revenue of $120 million in 2011 and a profit of just under $21.9 million. Shutterstock was founded in 2003 by Jonathan Oringer, who is still the company’s CEO. The company has received venture backing from Insight Venture Partners and Oringer’s own Pixel Holdings Inc.

According to its S-1 filing, Shutterstock currently offers one of the largest content libraries in the commercial digital imagery industry with over 19 million photographs and illustrations and about 500,000 videos from more than 35,000 contributors. In 2011, the company delivered more than 58 million paid downloads. The average cost per image on the site in 2011 was around $3. Shutterstock says that it had more than 550,000 paying customers in 2011.

Shutterstock competes directly with other online stock photography services like iStockphoto and Fotalia, as well as more traditional services like Corbis and Getty Images. The company offers both subscription plans that give its users access to a set amount of images per day, as well as the ability to buy rights to individual images and videos in its collection.

You can read the company’s complete S-1 filing here.
