This is all happening based on a jaw dropping $50 billion valuation of Facebook.
Speculation as to what is going to be done with this money runs a wide range.
The first thing Facebook’s likely to do with its $2 billion in new funding is to cash out some of its existing investors and employees. The social network previously did this when DST bought $200 million in Facebook stock from its employees. Some of its early investors may also reach into the $2 billion pot and cash out.
Once that’s done, it’s all about growth.
