there are a few new members to the 1% club as facebook announces an initial public offering.
mark zuckerberg, the c.e.o. and inventor of facebook, owns 533.8 million shares and stands to be worth $28.3 billion if the valuation of the company at $100 billion is correct.
i like the fact that zuckerberg is going to be a billionaire, especially because i know he’ll pay his “fair share” of taxes but because he’s created a product that helps me keep in touch with my friend. but i know we have to be careful, because it’s important to log out every once in a while and have real interactions with our friends — logging out is the toughest click!
mark zuckerberg has said something that i’ve always hoped is true for him: “we don’t build services to make money, we make money to build better service.”
