The Facebook IPO Timeline

The Facebook IPO Timeline
17/05/2012 by Stephanie Buck on Mashable

If the Facebook IPO were a real person, we certainly wouldn’t blame it for posting braggy status updates. This infographic, created by our friends at, imagines the road leading up to the decade’s most-anticipated initial public offering, as if it were documented on its own Facebook Timeline.

As a Facebook user, give yourself a pat on the back for helping the company make it this far. You are one of 900 million, and you spend an average of 20 minutes per day surfing the network. That means Facebook’s usership logs 16,000 years of combined time on the platform per day.

Over time as a Facebook user, you’ve become worth an average of $100 to the company. Not too shabby, considering Instagram and Twitter users amount to only $30 and $70 each, respectively.

And once you realize that the price per Facebook share will cost about the same as an all-you-can-eat buffet for two at Sizzler ($28-$35), you might consider celebrating your hand in Facebook’s unprecedented success.
