A couple of days ago, Goldman Sachs put $450 million into Facebook at a $50 billion valuation. Now, being part owners of the massive social network, they have put an interesting number on paper for Goldman Sachs investors. According to Business Insider, a new Goldman Sachs document for investors states that Facebook has 600+ million active monthly users. Thats a lot!
It was only back in July that Facebook hit the 500 million user mark so that is a pretty good growth rate. Even with 600 million active users, I still don’t think it is worth $50 billion. Cut that number in half and I think that we are in the right ballpark. Regardless of what the social network is worth, I would love to see some numbers showing what kind of a bump in users they got from the Facebook movie, The Social Network.
Congrats to Facebook on 600+ million users! Send some of them our way!
