Facebook Goes Public, Doesn’t Update StatusBy: Chris Crum - May 18, 2012
Facebook is now officially listed on the NASDAQ. Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg rang the bell, and had his own status updated to say: “Mark Zuckerberg listed a company on NASDAQ. — with Chris Cox and 4 others.”
According to TechCrunch, “Some savvy Facebook engineers rigged the NASDAQ button” to update it for him.
If you look at Facebook’s company timeline, however, there’s no update. I have to say, that’s somewhat surprising. This is the biggest moment in the company’s history, and no update?
In fact, Facebook hasn’t posted an update since the Organ Donor thing at the beginning of the month. Has Facebook stopped using Facebook? Just kidding.
Hopefully users are following Zuck. Otherwise, how will they ever find out about the IPO?
On a related note, since we’re looking at Facebook’s timeline, it’s worth noting that only 66 million “like” Facebook. You’d think there would be more, with over 900 million users.
