Facebook Stalker

More than a week ago, a restraining order has been issued against a stalker of Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook . News reports refer to this person as the “Facebook Stalker”.

During the time that I didn’t have my own Facebook account yet, my son has allowed me to use his account to search for family and friends, snoop on their whereabouts, find out what’s going on their lives and most especially browse through their photo albums.  That’s how I earned the name “Facebook Stalker”.

Facebook to be the First TRILLION Dollar Company

Goldman Sachs is buying $1.5 billion worth of Facebook stock at a $50 billion valuation.

Wedbush analyst Lou Kerner said that if Facebook were a public company, it would be valued closer to $100 billion right now.

On the secondary markets, accredited investors are actually buying Facebook stock at much steeper implied valuations – sometimes higher than even $124 billion.

Crazy numbers right?

Wait till you hear about the numbers they’re throwing around inside Facebook. The goal is to turn Facebook into the world’s first TRILLION dollar company.

$1 trillion? As in one-thousand billion dollars?! For real? Do you think they will make it? But how soon?
