07:08 EDTFBGoogle apps take up nearly as much user time as Facebook’s apps, WSJ says
A study released by Forrester Research suggests that U.S. smartphone users in late 2014 spent roughly 12% of their time in Google (GOOG) apps, just below the 13% spent on Facebook (FB) apps, the Wall Street Journal reports. The time spent on Google apps is likely to be “much higher” since respondents were only asked to list apps they downloaded and the time spent on them, excluding apps pre-loaded on certain Google phones, the report says. The same is true of Apple’s (AAPL) apps, amounting to 3% of users time, the report says. Reference Link

OneWeb announced it has raised $500M in funding from a number of companies, including Airbus (EADSY), Bharti, EchoStar's (SATS) Hughes, Intelsat (I), Qualcomm (QCOM), Coca-Cola (KO), Totalplay, and Virgin Group. OneWeb is engaged in developing satellite technologies to "beam" broadband internet to rural and underdeveloped locations, as well as to ships, planes, trains, and oil platforms. Bharti chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal will be joining Airbus Group CEO Tom Enders as well as Virgin's Richard Branson and Qualcomm's Paul Jacobs on the OneWeb board of directors. OneWeb also reiterated its June 15 announcement of its joint venture with Airbus to design and manufacture 900 microsatellites. "We are committed to giving our full industrial and space expertise to this mission," remarked Airbus' Tom Enders. "Intelsat has the world’s largest fleet of Ku Band geostationary satellites and our interoperability will enable pole-to-pole and urban canyon coverage with new services," said Intelsat. Note that both Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) are working on similar projects to facilitate global internet access. Reference Link

09:51 EDTFBFacebook near test of life high, levels to watch
The stock has been trading in a range largely defined by a low at $77 and a high at $85 since February of this year. That is a slightly more bullish range than the previous several months characterized by a low at $75 and a high at $82. The life high for the shares is at $86.07, with the stock breaking the range high and last at $85.65. This move could be another oscillation in the range, or it might presage a genuine breakout in price. With the range having built for so long a period, a breakout could see a more rapid increase in price with a probe to the $90 to $95 area quite possible. A move back below $85 would mean this was another excursion testing the bounds of the range, with next support below at $82.

06:03 EDTFBFacebook price target raised to $120 from $92 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster raised his price target for shares of Facebook to $120 and keeps an Overweight rating on the name. Facebook is the best play on the "next computer paradigm of virtual reality," Munster tells investors this morning in a research note. Oculus, the company's virtual reality technology, is an "insurance policy on the relevance of Facebook's social portfolio as technology shifts,” Munster writes. He believes the long-term value of technology is not reflected in the current share price. The social networking giant closed Friday down 39c to $82.51.

Brean Capital analyst Sarah Hindlian raised her price target for Facebook to $108 from $100 while telling investors to own the stock for the long haul. After analyzing the potential of the social networking giant's mobile applications, including Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger, Hindlian's "bear case" analyses demonstrate that Facebook may have an incremental $4.0B in revenue in FY16 from monetization efforts. Only 25%-35% of this potential revenue is included in consensus estimates, the analyst states this morning in a research note. She reiterates a Buy rating on Facebook. The stock closed yesterday up 35c to $81.06.

06:31 EDTFBBelgian Privacy Commission adopts first recommendation of principle on Facebook
The Belgian Privacy Commission said in a statement that on May 13 it adopted a first recommendation of principle on Facebook. "It has observed that Facebook 'processes' the personal data of its members, users as well as of all internet users who come into contact with Facebook. Facebook does this secretively: no consent is asked for this 'tracking and tracing' and the use of cookies. No targeted information is provided. The available information is vague and authorizes just about anything. Following the introduction of new worldwide terms of use by Facebook, a number of European privacy commissions queried Facebook, which was particularly sparing with precise answers and also refused to comply with the request to postpone the entry into force of the new terms of use. Facebook did not accept that it was bound by the national privacy legislation of Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. It rejected the competence of those countries' supervisory authorities for privacy. Facebook only accepts supervision by the Irish privacy commission and the application of Irish law.After months of unsuccessful correspondence and fruitlessly exchanging ideas, the Belgian Privacy Commission has now adopted a first recommendation. This document establishes first of all that the Belgian Privacy Commission is competent and that Belgian law also applies to Facebook, simply because any national supervisory authority is obliged to ensure privacy protection for its citizens. And Belgian law also applies because the Facebook Group has an actual establishment in Brussels, Belgium. At the request of the Belgian Privacy Commission the inter-university research center EMSOC/SPION conducted a detailed study into the way in which Facebook deals with its members' personal data. And that of citizens who do not use Facebook or who explicitly opted out of its service.The research results are disconcerting. Facebook disregards European and Belgian privacy legislation in several ways. In 10 chapters an equal amount of issues have been uncovered. It is the Belgian Privacy Commission's ambition to thoroughly look into these issues. Until today, the eighth chapter - 'tracking trough social plug-ins' - has been the focus of attention, because it does not only impact Facebook users but also virtually every Internet user in Belgium and Europe. Up to this day Facebook refuses to recognize the application of Belgian legislation nor the Belgian Privacy Commission. Until now it has always contested the findings of the EMSOC/SPION research report, but it has not provided concrete facts repudiating them. To the contrary: Facebook recognizes that errors, 'BUGS' have been uncovered." Reference Link
