Facebook IPO: what’s your value?

You’ve probably heard how everyone is talking about Facebook’s coming IPO. Well, counting on high demand, the world’s number one social network raised the price per share from $28-$35 to $34-$38, Reuters reports. If the shares are sold for $36 each, Facebook will raise $12.1 billion in what has already been labeled the biggest IPO in history. 

Today Facebook, which according to different sources is worth between $86.5 and $100 billion, has more than 900 million active users a month. When this number is compared to the social network’s revenue and other figures, it turns out that each of them has value of about $96. The number may vary, of course, depending on the amount of time the user spends liking, updating, poking and sharing.

If you’re wondering how much you personally are worth to Facebook, take the Val-You quiz for a quick estimate: I happen to be worth a modest amount of $14. Mashable says the value of users who live outside of North America may be lower because fewer ads are targeted at them, but it’s still quite disappointing to cost only $14…

Anyway, here’s a video with some more interesting numbers and facts about Facebook. And if you find how much your account is worth – don’t forget to put it in the comments. Let’s see who’s the most valuable!
