Wiki-Valuations: The Inside Skinny on $50 BN for Facebook

Jan. 3, 2011 12:35 pm
Categories: Musings

Leave it to the Internet.

Goldman Sachs just awarded a $50 billion valuation to Facebook. And in a shrewd branding maneuver, the storied financial behemoth is offering its high-net-worth clients the option to co-invest in the world's leading social media site.

Is the investment opportunity exclusive? Absolutely. Will there be a fee? You bet.

Before investors jump in with their big boots, however, I encourage them to review the groundbreaking analysis—which I unearthed over at Herding Cats. This chart debunks the $50 billion valuation and even suggests some New Year's resolutions if you're late to the 2011 party.

BestThinking to be Updated this Weekend

If all goes well you will see a change in the layout of BestThinking's Home and Category pages. Topics & Articles and Blogs & Books will no longer be shown in two separate columns.

All 4 content types (Articles, Blogs, Books, and Topics) will be Featured Content together as one continuous stream, although the column structure - one wide and one narrow - will remain the same. The first (wide) column will now flow into the second (narrow) column. This change is in response to Blogs becoming as important a content type as Articles and Topics. This will also give Featured Content more time on the Home page which is helpful regarding search engines indexing this content.
