The end of last week seemed pretty worthy for Facebook, as it raised a whopping amount of $1.5 Billion on Friday taking its financial valuation to a net worth of $50 Billion. This should definitely make Mark Zuckerberg smile ear-to-ear as his baby project, Facebook has grown to become the third largest online service in terms of financial worth. Google leads the charts with Amazon.com at second position in this list.
Facebook has over-taken Yahoo! and eBay in financial standings. All thanks to the recent investment deals Facebook had with non-US investors through Goldmans Sachs which was worth $1 Billion. In addition to this Russia’s Digital Sky Technologies had also invested half a billion dollars in Facebook during the month of December.
