28. Google is VERY different from FB

Google kicked Goldman Sachs out of their IPO. They turned down a buyout offer from Microsoft. They CUT the size of the offering and the price before the IPO. Google opened at $85 a share is now selling at $599.

Too many other differences to list but Facebook peaked a year ago and then scrambled to cash in before the bottom drops out.
