Mark Zuckerberg Is Now the Wealthiest Whipper Snapper In America.
With the IPO of Facebook behind us, everyone wants to know: Just how much freaking money did this kid walk away with?
Well when all was said & done and the yo-yo stopped bouncing.. $19.18 Billion Dollars.
For all of you working people that have busted your asses, at some job, for the last 20 years, I am here to put what you did and what he did, into perspective.

On the eve of Facebook’s IPO, Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg published the following letter to potential investors:
Dear Potential Investor:
For years, you’ve wasted your time on Facebook. Now here’s your chance to waste your money on it, too.
Today is Facebook’s IPO, and I know what some of you are thinking. How will Facebook be any different from the dot-com bubble of the early 2000’s?
For one thing, those bad dot-com stocks were all speculation and hype, and weren’t based on real businesses. Facebook, on the other hand, is based on a solid foundation of angry birds and imaginary sheep.
Second, Facebook is the most successful social network in the world, enabling millions to share information of no interest with people they barely know.
Third, every time someone clicks on a Facebook ad, Facebook makes money. And while no one has ever done this on purpose, millions have done it by mistake while drunk. We totally stole this idea from iTunes.
Klik, the Facebook iOS Photo app that knows your friends and tags them for you.
KLIK, by Face.com is the new iOS photo application that uses Face.com's facial recognition software to analyze your pictures, as you take them and determine, based on your Facebook friends, exactly who they are with a scary degree of accuracy.
When you first install the application, try it out by using the front facing camera to scan your own face, like a scene from The Terminator, it will lock onto your face and give you a percentile of accuracy as to exactly who you are. You then confirm your identity. There on, when you use the Klik app to take photos it will make highly educated guesses as to who is in the photo and hover your friend's names over their face.
KLIK is a camera app that uses face recognition to let you quickly tag your friends in real-time & requires a Facebook account, and iOS 4.3 or above.
Fire up KLIK and watch as your friends' names instantly appear next to their faces before or after you snap a photo.
If KLIK doesn't recognize a face - snap a photo, tap "Tag Me" over unrecognized faces to pick a name, and then save the photo (no need to share).
The more photos you save, the better KLIK gets.
Best of all, KLIK is FREE.
Facebook you must be out of your mind.
Who do you think you are? Fort Knox? I like keeping my Facebook ID Secure. But this is taking it a bit too far.
This capcha is more insane than my online banking's security features, and all I was doing was posting a photo.
