Facebook: $50bn and soon to be a trillion?

January 19, 2011

Media reports have been freaking out recently if $50bn valuation for FB signals the return of the a much fearer tech bubble 2.0. The answer is no. There is almost no money being thrown at tech companies this time around vs 1999. Right now its all risk capital from institutional and VC investors whereas last time it was that plus huge amounts of money from average investors investing in IPOs and public companies.

The bigger story here is that FB is likely to become the worlds largest company by valuation. Yes, we said it. FB has more revenue opportunities than any other company in the world and it appears to be executing on them. More details to follow in another post but remember that you heard it hear first, FB will be the worlds largest company in a relatively short period of time.
