    If investors can't even remember back as far as MySpace, then they very much deserve to loose their money.

        Spelling and usage _are_ important. No matter how brilliant you are, nobody will take your opinions seriously if you're spelling makes you look like a looser on the Internet.

    Remember when they said "AOL is the internet"? Look at them now. Anybody who honestly believes FB is worth 100B, please come see me as I have some beautiful waterfront property I can sell you, dirt cheep.

    Would that be April the 1st by any chance?

    have to stop and think about it - $100Bn is a /lot/ of money.

    pressure to make money after IPO -> upsets freetards -> fickle populace leave in droves?

    maybe, I dunno - s'epct Google+ cares more about that than I do.

    $100bn for what exactly? Same bunch of sad twats that simply cannot live without their crackberry/ifone/handroid.....

    Probably quite a good deal on FB if you have some money.

    That values the company at 125 USD per so called "active user". I would like to see the business plan on how they are planing to monetize us freetards to that effect. My guess is facebook will be gone&dusted long before they see that much money from their user base.

    If I were Zuckerberg I would wait until the feeding frenzy peaked and dump all my shares before the inevitable crash. I would then fashion my billions of dollars into a huge sign reading "Whose the bitch no suckers?"

      I suppose you meant "Who's the bitch now, suckers?"

      However, even when grammatically correct, the idea makes no sense since no one called Zuckerberg a bitch except himself.

    Quick, buy a real company

    The smartest thing AOL did was translate pieces of paper in a bubble company into shares in a real business - Time Warner. Time Warner buying AOL might have made some sense. AOL buying Time Warner was ludicrous. But only with the benefit of hindsight.

    Zuck, if you can get your 100bn, buy a real company. Immediately.
