Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg rang the New York-based NASDAQ’s opening bell from Facebook’s Silicon Valley campus today — the day of Facebook’s long-awaited initial public offering. Each share (FB) will sell for $38. That would raise $16 billion. And it would put Facebook’s value at $104 billion, which is more than Disney and McDonalds. At Facebook’s headquarters, it was to be a day of riches for many early employees. At 28, Zuckerberg, will become a billionaire 30 times over, and many early employees will become multi-millionaires.
