Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg yesterday showed up to meet analysts and potential investors in New York as part of the company's initial public offering (IPO) roadshow. Today, he didn't show up for the Boston stop, where about 200 people were eagerly awaiting him, and no reason was given for his absence. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg fielded the questions.
She had a lot of time to so, since Facebook didn't play its 30-minute IPO video, according to Reuters. New Yorkers complained the video resulted in less time for questions, so Facebook scrapped it. Bostonians can see the video on their own time, as it's been available since last week when it was released along with the IPO prospectus
