The Making Of The Richest Technology Company

The Social network ‘s  billions of electronic nodes and links will soon make a fortune for Mr Zuckerberg, still only 27, who owns 28.4% of Facebook and will continue to control most of the voting rights.With the annoucement of the Facebook IPO , that is expected to raise $5 billion, to 10 billion or  maybe more, in the largest flotation ever of an internet company. Not since Google’s IPO in 2004—the year that Facebook was founded—have techies and venture capitalists been so aflutter. Facebook’s flotation, which is likely to take place in the spring, will create a publicly quoted tech giant that will stand alongside American technology titans such as Amazon, Apple and Google itself.

Facebook’s stunning progress has earned the company estimated valuations of between $75 billion and $100 billion. Private trading in its shares on secondary markets has implied a value of more than $80 billion. That would be more than 20 times last year’s revenues—and more than 80 times last year’s net income. These are simply mouth watering and eye-catching high multiples.

So although payments started as a tiny sliver of Facebook's overall revenue, now it's up to about 17 percent of the total.
As companies start to sell other kinds of goods through Facebook, like concert tickets, this percentage could grow
