The Facebook Story - Bloomberg Game Changers



Mark Zukerberg revealed



Very interesting video about The Facebook Story.  

FACEBOOK FILES FOR IPO

FACEBOOK

The MOST anticipated IPO in the History of tech startups files to go IPO.  Yes, finally Facebook files for IPO and plans to raise $5 Billion.  With 845 Million Active Users it is mind boggling when we think about the potential it has to create Worlds Biggest Company.  Mark Zukerberg would be worth about $28 Billion with this IPO and in the process would create about 1000 Millionaires out of Facebook which is 1/3rd of its 4000+ employees.  According to the filing the latest earnings are not very impressive but I tend to think that this will all change pretty soon when Facebook starts sharing more and more information it already knows about these 800+ Million users all around the world and start bombarding with targeted advertisements.  All of a sudden other traditional / non-traditional advertising medium is obsolete.  Yes, this is highly Disruptive as many companies will be shut down due to Facebook and many like Zinga and Spotify would make fortunes.  When Google went public at $85 (700% Return as of today) they had similar highly Disruptive technology and critics questioned about how in the world are they going to make money.  Here we are a decade later and Google has more than 1 Billion active users and a market cap of $188 Billion as of today.  It pretty much killed most of the traditional advertising medium.  And here comes Facebook to challenge Google.  It's going to be super interesting as I think Facebook has an upper hand on capitalizing on their user base by targeting highly specific ads.  Time for Facebook to make money on all of our "LIKES". YIKES!

Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, & JP Morgan are the lead underwriters,
Here is the SEC Filing,


If you get a chance to get in on the IPO, then Good Luck to you.  Me, I will have to figure out an alternative strategy.

SuperWoman - Elinor Sauerwein and A SuperMan - Bill Gates


I came across a very Interesting piece of well researched article by Frugaldad.com.  It's worth sharing so here it is,  What is more interesting about this article is not that Bill Gates has donated about $28 Billion as of 2007 or he saved about few Million lives, but the Multiplier Effect he has created.  Warren Buffet and Bill Gates has convinced about 69 Rich people so far, who signed up for his GivingPledge.org foundation. According to which, these rich people pledged to donate more than 50% of their wealth to charities before they die.  Very touching, it needs heart to do that.  Mind you as much as I (and you too) liked Steve Jobs (Founder of Apple inc.) his name is not in this list.  Both Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are visionaries.  Both of them created technologies that touched or changed Billions of lives for better.  But Kudos to Bill Gates for donating half of his wealth for saving millions of lives and convincing so many rich people to do the same.


Here is an even more super interesting article I just came across, the title says it all but you can still read it at,
'Poor' Woman Leaves Close to $2 Million to Salvation Army  
Elinor, is one SuperWoman that needs worth mentioning over and over.  She was never rich and never lived with any luxory.  She would put the most frugal of frugal person to shame.  Yes, she was ULTRA FRUGAL with one Goal, She wanted to donate the money she would save to The Salvation Army.  And She did.  She donated about $1.8 Million to Salvation Army.  Hats off to Elinor.  Another Lesson Learned.
