Hey I know, we can use Facebook for invasive surveillance and tracking by governments and private entities unknown and uncounted.

Facebook tracking is under scrutiny

Best quote, I hope this meets the posting guidelines I was just discussing elsewhere on SI:
"Facebook officials are now acknowledging that the social media giant has been able to create a running log of the web pages that each of its 800 million or so members has visited during the previous 90 days. Facebook also keeps close track of where millions more non-members of the social network go on the Web, after they visit a Facebook web page for any reason."

No thank you. BTW, their membership numbers are inflated with millions of inactive or abandoned accounts.

As long as I am posting links, there's this. It may actually affect use of your information going forward, but know that the horse has long been out of the barn.

Facebook IPO at $100B Val Could Come Wednesday, Says WSJ
By Tiernan Ray

blogs.barrons.com

The Wall Street Journal’s Shayndi Raice and Randall Smith this afternoon report that Facebookmay file for an initial public offering as soon as next Wednesday, valuing the company in a range of $75 billion to $100 billion, citing multiple anonymous sources.

The news comes two days after reports that private trading in shares of Facebook were being suspended.

A source I spoke with earlier this week with one investor owns private shares of Facebook opined that the valuation will likely be in the $40 range, above recent private trades at around $30. That would push the valuation toward the upper end of the range Raice and Smith are discussing. Indeed this source opined that the valuation out of the chute would probably be around $100 billion.

I would note that SharesPostof late has displayed recent transactions for Facebook at a price of $34, and states that the implied market value is $80 billion.

Publicly Traded Social Networking Stocks To Play The Facebook IPO

Investors can buy publicly traded social networking stocks to play the Facebook IPO to invest in the Facebook IPO indirectly by investing in the social networking sector. Buying publicly traded social networking stocks before the Facebook IPO is a way that stock traders can position themselves for the possibility that social networking stocks will rally in ahead of and in conjunction with the Facebook IPO to potentially profit from the Facebook IPO in an indirect way.

Facebook Eyes IPO Dates of May 17 or May 24

Facebook has homed in on two possible dates to launch its initial public offering on the Nasdaq, according to a person familiar with the matter. Bankers & management are currently looking at a primary target date of May 16 or May 17 to price the deal (with trading commencing the following day), according to this person, and trading would commence the following morning. The company would begin marketing the deal on May 7 under that scenario. The final timing, however, will be highly dependent on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s review of Facebook’s recently announced $1 billion acquisition of Instagram. While bankers expect the commission to give the deal a go-ahead by the end of April, unforeseen comments or questions from regulators could push IPO pricing back by roughly one week.

If that were the case, the company would default to a plan B, which would aim to price the deal on May 23 or 24 and begin trading the following day.

Facebook revises user policies after complaints, questions

Following a lengthy period of questions, comments and complaints about the difficulty users have in controlling privacy, Facebook has posted a series of proposed revisions to its Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, and is extending the comment period. The company continues to struggle with balance between gathering information about users for the benefit of both other users and advertisers, while addressing concerns of users, most of whom do not fully understand Facebook's data collection.
