Facebook valuation on the rise

This deal values the social network at $65bn, weeks after an investment round led by Goldman Sachs and DST valued the company at $50bn.

The investment by General Atlantic has yet to be approved by Facebook, but indicates that a future IPO would give the company a market cap of around $100bn. 

At the end of last week, activity on SecondMarket, the private company stock exchange, indicated that Facebook is now worth around $75bn. 

Facebook has more than 600 million users. Almost half of the UK population has a profile on the network. Mark Zuckerberg’s 24 per cent stake in the business is now worth $15bn.
