It seems like the hoopla over Mark Zuckerberg’s social network becoming a publicly-traded company has been going on for months. Yet, today the day where those who feel Facebook can withstand the test of time will put their money where their like button is and entrust their funds in the company they probably already invest too much time into. While that offering is the story in itself, the intrigue lies in whether or not folks will actually participate.
It’s already been noted half the general public feels Facebook is simply a fad, yet most of those people presumably say that about the Internet in general. On the other hand, Forbes is bypassing those fogies altogether and encouraging folks to buy fast and buy in bulk. After all, it’s only the biggest tech IPO ever, not to mention one that’s almost completely reliant on our generation.
So, the question is, will you you be buying Facebook shares or keeping the money under your mattress?
