Facebook Investor says $1 Billion Offer Too Low!!! He compares Facebook to the value of MTV!!!

Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg was only 19 when he founded Facebook, the social networking site designed for college students. He is now 23 and has turned down a reported $1Billion offer from internet giant Yahoo!.

Early investor Peter Thiel who sits on Facebook’s board, believes that a measly $1 billion dollars for this 300-person company spread over three buildings in downtown Palo-Alto, California, is a risible sum! He compares Facebook’s current price tag to that of MTV, which he values at $7 or $8 billion!

Thiel says “Between the two I would want to own Facebook.” (Yea sure you would pal!!! That’s bull! You are an investor and you sit on the board, so what else would we expect you to say! It’s called great promotion and publicity! But you and every other wall street analyst know that’s a blatant lie!) Mark Zuckerberg and the people at Facebook are now talking about a possible IPO in 2 years that could potentially be the biggest public offering since Google.

This is very interesting being that Tom Anderson and Chris DeWolfe sold Myspace for a measly $580 million to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. Google picked up YouTube for $1.65 billion. We can see why Mark Zuckerberg and the gang are holding out. But the question is what makes Facebook worth $7 or $8 Billion??? We definitely don’t see how their value can measure up to that of MTV. We think Peter Thiel was definitely smoking something illegal when he made that bold unproven statement!

    Just about every college student out their goes on facebook multiple time a day. I use it to correspond on class projects instead of using the schools e-mail for example.

    Truth be told, I think that with the number of ads that college students see on facebook and the few times that college age people actually go on mtv. I think I would choose facebook. Besides, as their base, college students, graduate, they still use it to continue and consistently gaining more users and more and more people entire college, which network on facebook is an almost must.

    well the comaprison might be far fteched but it indeed is a fact that MTV is certainly way behind facebook as far as advertisements are concerned. Facebook is extremely popular among students and is a community expanding exponentially so it has no comparsion with myspaces. Facebook must be given the due credit and atleast a big above @2 billion
