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.
