It's been widely reported that GM has pulled its $10 million traditional display-advertising budget from Facebook. The timing of this move could be concerning to those thinking about investing in the social-networking giant. While this news is on the homepage of practically every financial website, there are many nuances that investors need to be aware of, such as the $30 million GM is still spending with agencies on Facebook.
