Tracking the Facebook IPO coverage
Facebook filed for an IPO today; here’s a link to the SEC filing.
The best place to follow what’s in it — both the important and the trivial — actually seems to be a well-curated Twitter timeline. I don’t think there’s an easy way to link to a snapshot of my timeline from about 4:30-6 p.m. ET today, so you’ll have to take my word for it. (Facebook itself, it turns out, isn’t very useful for something like this. Nice work, Twitter.)
On a personal note, as an early, long-time, and avid Facebook user, I’m very happy for Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, and their employees. Facebook, it appears, is a strong and healthy business, and I’m glad that’s the case. Better yet, its commercial efforts, like Google’s, haven’t (yet) gotten in the way of my usage.
