Facebook (FB) shares change hands at $44.10 in their final SharesPost auction, as the company shuts down private-exchange trading ahead of its IPO. The closing price translates into a valuation of $104B, or perhaps $110B+ after factoring IPO dilution. Separately, SharesPost rival SecondMarket is laying off 10% of its staff, as it copes with both Facebook's offering and a broader pickup in tech IPO activity.

    Yep, I'm wondering if it's too late for the little guys to get a taste at this time.

    Seems to me like "big tech" has "vested interest" in "new tech", my opinion only.

    Price to Sales Ratio for this stock will likely make it the most expensive IPO of all-time. AAPL looks like a steal compared to this one.

     

    Not that valuation matters when it comes to the people that "invest" in these kinds of stocks.
