Does Facebook Owe Its Users Money? [Headlines]
A recent post on NYTime's Bit Blog argues that the world's largest social network should pay those who constitute the site.
By my calculation, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder and chief executive, owes me about $50. Without me, and the other 844,999,999 people poking, liking and sharing on the site, Facebook would look like a scene from the postapocalyptic movie “The Day After Tomorrow”: bleak, desolate and really quite sad. (Or MySpace, if that is easier to imagine.) Facebook surely would never be valued at anything close to $100 billion, which it very well could be in its coming initial public offering. NYTimes Bit Blog
