Facebook turns down 750 Million dollar buy out offer, looks for 2 Billion Dollars

Quote:
Facebook, the Web site where students around the world socialize and swap information, has put itself on the block, BusinessWeek Online has learned. The owners of the privately held company have turned down a $750 million offer and hope to fetch as much as $2 billion in a sale, senior industry executives familiar with the matter say.



That may sound like a huge amount of money, especially when you consider that the company was launched just two years ago by a group of sophomores at Harvard University, led by Mark Zuckerberg (see BW Online, "Under 30, On the Cutting Edge"). But already, www.facebook.com has become the seventh-most heavily trafficked site on the Internet, according to market researcher comScore Media Metrix. It racked up 5.5 billion page views during the month of February, the latest month for which complete data are available. That's more page views than the Web sites of Amazon.com (AMZN), Ask.com, or Walt Disney (DIS).

MySpace didn't even sell for that much.

damn, why didn't I think of that idea.

I would try to negotiate up to $1 billion. $2 is a bit excessive.

I've pretty much got my myspace to where I know the person and/or they are a band.

No whores.

There is enough idiots on there to begin with. No need to encourage them.

I've got an interesting idea, it'd be the ultimate myspace and facebook personal profile.. ever. I'm not posting my idea up here though, the forum has eyes.
