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

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.
