Facebook Makes More News – Finally Cash Flow Positive and 300 million Users!!!

09.18.09

On the same day Facebook reported that it finally became cash flow positive after 5 ½ years, Facebook also announced that it grew to 300 million users. Of course that’s all relative since in August 2008 Facebook reported that it had 100 million users, but also an almost unbeliev able growth of 200% in one year! Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said in a blog post that the goal of being free cash flow positive in its most recently ended quarter ahead of its 2010 target.

How Much is Facebook Worth?

A few months ago Digital Sky Technology’s $200 million investment meant that the estimated value of Facebook was about $6.5 billion. It seems likely that the private investors stand to profit nicely from Facebook’s tremendous success as Web 2.0 continues to grow wildly!

200% Grown in 1 Year, What Will Happen in the Next 12 Months?

What an unbelievable time in which we live to witness the past two years of Web 2.0 social networking. As I like to say the “Internet is the greatest social change that has ever happened in the history of humans....there are no boundaries of time and geography!” However since we are in the middle of this great social upheaval it is all the more difficult to see exactly where we are headed. Surely if Google, AOL, Yahoo!, or Microsoft had foreseen Facebook’s wild success , wouldn’t at least one of more of these giants created their own version of Facebook? What do you think?

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
