BANGKOK, 28 February 2012 (NNT) - According to the National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB), the famous social networking site, facebook, has partly contributed to the cause of unwanted teen pregnancies.

The NESDB has revealed that people in the age group of 18-24 are the biggest group of facebook users, accounting for 40% of all users.

The Board said that the social media growth is partly to blame for the teen pregnancy problems as some youngsters post seducing messages or video clips online.

According to the NESDB, Thai mothers under 20 years old accounted for 14% of all mothers who delivered babies in 2009 and 2010. From this percentage, the UNICEF has placed Thailand on top of the list of teen pregnancy in Asia.

The public health survey in 2010 indicated that out of 760,000 babies born, 411,000 had died. The NESDB said that the figure shows that a number of mothers decided to have abortion.

Yahoo bites Facebook

Yahoo Patent Lawsuit Filed Against Facebook

Yahoo is filing a lawsuit against Facebook over patents, following through on a threat it made last month.

Yahoo Inc. said in a court filing Monday that Facebook has infringed 10 of its patents covering advertising, privacy controls and social networking.

Yahoo threatened to sue Facebook last month, insisting that the social network license its patents.

Facebook pledged to defend itself vigorously against what it called "puzzling actions" by Yahoo.

"We're disappointed that Yahoo, a longtime business partner of Facebook and a company that has substantially benefited from its association with Facebook, has decided to resort to litigation," Facebook said in a statement.

The patent claims could cast a spotlight on Facebook's vulnerabilities as the company tries to complete an initial public offering of stock this spring. At the end of 2011, only 56 U.S. patents had been issued to Facebook. That's a relatively small number compared with other big tech companies. Yahoo, on the other hand, owns more than 1,000 patents.

Yahoo defended its lawsuit, saying it has invested "substantial resources in research and development" over the years that have led to patents of technology that other companies have licensed.

"Unfortunately, the matter with Facebook remains unresolved," the company said in a statement.

Yahoo, which has seen its revenue fall steadily over the past three years, made hundreds of millions of dollars from a patent settlement that it reached with Google Inc. just before that Internet search leader went public in 2004.

Zuckerberg Loses Billions in Hours

Facebook stock fell again down to $23.81, a drop of 11.3 percent, bringing the social app to a new all-time low, and ripping about $3 billion from Mark Zuckerberg’s pocketbook in a little less than 48 hours, CNET reports.

Oddly enough, the company itself is earning a profit and increasing its consumer base. This, says John Fitzgibbon of IPOScoop.com, shows a “disconnect between the stock and the company,” USA Today reports. Second quarter revenue grew 32 percent, and its user base has grown 29 percent from last year to 955 million active users.

Left to be seen is how the company will do post lock-up, when more insiders can sell shares. 90 days after the IPO, August 15, 268 million shares will be available for sale, however, on November 13, 1.24 billion shares will be available. Zuckerberg has sold 30.2 million shares at $37.58 a share to pay taxes, CNET reports, earning him about $1.1 billion.

Alex Ashby, research analyst at Global X Funds told the Associated Press, “People are waiting for a really huge growth moment in revenue, advertising, dollars per user. People had expected that Facebook is going to revolutionize advertising….We think it’s still a definite possibility, but maybe further down the road.” Which leaves readers to believe that good things might still be in store.
