Facebook fans and investors aren't exactly having a great week.

Facebook stock went out at $38 a share on Friday. After an opening day frenzy that boosted the value by a few dollars a share, Facebook stock has been on the decline. Today, it's going for roughly $32 a share.

Producer Steve Proffitt joins Madeleine Brand to discuss what could be causing the drop in value and what it means for the future of Facebook.
