Before I start my discussion on the Facebook IPO, I’d like to congratulate it’s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his long-time girlfriend Priscila Chan on their wedding Saturday night.
Now, after months of waiting for one of the most anticipated initial public stock offerings ever, it’s finally over. Facebook is now a publicly traded stock, on Nasdaq. It was able to raise $16 billion, and is currently valued at $104 billion. Obscene figures, that’s for sure.
