If the headline didn't get your attention, the infographic below is sure to. According to the latest info, Facebook could IPO at $10 billion! If you're wondering, Google IPO'd at $1.67 billion. The $10 billion IPO equals a $100 billion valuation. This puts it bigger than Disney, currently at $61 billion, and Amazon, currently holding at $88.3 billion. Why is this mobile news? The main reason is that recent figures have stated that Facebook has 300 million app users. I thought this number was particularly worthy of mention since Facebook originally just had one guy, Joe Hewitt, building the iPhone app, and yet it started a frenzy of mobile usage. The other interesting stat is that Facebook has more than 350 million users accessing the site from a mobile device each month. It's amazing to see how mobile-friendly the world has become since the launch of the iPhone. Facebook IPO

    This is why I don't invest in the stock market. It just doesn't make any sense to me.

  • Anybody dumb enough to invest on Facebook ....

    ... deserves to lose his money.

    How can anybody seriously believe the BS numbers being thrown around about Facebook ... a company with a SINGLE product that is dependent on being the fad of the day and a product that is already on a spiral decline to obsolescence?

      @wackoae 'already on a spiral decline to obsolescence"? Really? I'm assuming that's an opinion because exactly the opposite is true.

    Congratulations with the next big bubble. Facebook will be wiped of the earth as soon as Grandmothers and Daddies will start using it in bigger numbers. As a teenager you will not likely be cool anymore. Ask Ruport Murdoch how these investments work out. For Mark Z. it will be great, the suckers are the new shareholders.

      @rhon@... There are already huge numbers of older folk using it. I've got three teenagers and a great number of their friends as my FB friends and haven't seen any of them leave. Most of the younger kids I know use Twitter if they want to post something personal to their friends that they don't want the old folks to see. As far as the ipo value goes, seems a tad high lol
