Forbes released its annual list of billionaires and 6 were people involved
with Facebook including Mark Zuckerberg ($13.5 billion), and Facebook
co-founders Dustin Moskovitz, Eduardo Saverin and Sean Parker. Hardly a
surprise rather just a confirmation of the value of Social Media innovation as
portrayed in the Social Network movie. Unfortunately for Tyler and Cameron
Winklevoss who had to settle for a measly $31
million and now challenging the settlement as they claimed to be the
inventors of Facebook. One might wonder where the next billionaire idea will
develop and change the direction of Social Media.
Facebook Reaches Top 10 in US Ad
ComScore recent US Ad Rankings showed that "Facebook was viewed
by 153.0 million unique visitors in January, or 72.2% of the overall U.S. Internet
audience that month, putting the site in 10th place in ComScore's Ad Focus
survey of U.S. sites and advertising networks. The top spot went to Google Ad
Network, with 197.1 million unique visitors, or 93.1% of Americans online."
Facebook was ranked a measly 26th by ComScore in June 2010 so their rise in
popularity helps explain why there are 6 billionaires at Facebook!
