Friday May 18, 2012 was the IPO for Facebook Stock on the NASDAQ. Did you participate?
Well, who knew what would happen! I am not going to say I gave much thought one way or the other. But wow! I am a bit surprised about what did happened.
Here is a link to a story about it. Within this story are other links to more stories. Actually if you choose to Google it, there are lots of stories.
It’s interesting to see this happen after seeing the Movie, Social Media, out a few years ago. This was about Zuckerberg and the beginning of Facebook and if we are to believe the story line, Zuckerberg resisted for many years the thought of doing this. He didn’t want ads and he didn’t want the IPO.
Who knows what changed his mind. I’m sure it was a series of business decisions based on the advice of his ‘people’ and obviously, what he wanted now as well.
Oh, and by the way, Mark Zuckerberg and his longtime girlfriend, Pricilla Chan were married the next day, Saturday May 19th. And that’s not all… Pricilla Chan graduated from UC San Francisco Medical School on Monday May 14th. Now that’s a busy week!
It will be interesting to observe what happens next… and down the road.
Any prognosticators? I certainly will not take a stab at that one.
So, did you participate? Are you in for the long haul?
