The shares of Facebook went sky high by over 3% reaching $45. What that means is that currently the social network par excellence is worth at least $106 billion. The graph of progress so far has been a series of jagged edges that rose and fell. But today’s milestone was a triumph for Mark Zuckerberg and the staff of Facebook. 

Zuckerberg spoke of how the IPO process had toughened Facebook considerably thereby making the wildly popular site a warrior among Internet concerns. He said, “I’m probably the person you would want to ask last how to make a smooth IPO, I was really worried that people would leave the company and that people would get really demoralized when the stock was down,” according to Bloomberg

Some of the CEO’s fears and worries were unfounded as he himself admitted. Zuckerberg had created Facebook from humble beginnings in a Harvard dormitory. The decision to go public had paid off in the end.  

The Internet has definitely been good to Facebook. With over 1.15 billion users spread throughout the global village, the site has been condemned for its facetiousness. Yet it is frequented by so many that the act of moral indignation seems more like jealousy surrounded with a halo. 

It is the biggest online ad business and makes a whole lot of money from the activities that take place on it. Since its debut in the hot month of May in 2012, this is the first time that Facebook has hit the nail on the head (so to say). The mobile user base has grown by a whopping 51% and things are looking up.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
