With one click of a computer’s mouse, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg became one of the richest people in the world, if not in history when the company he founded became public last week.

By Shane Joseph, published on Apr 15, 2012

...those start-up social media sites, did you think that matters would come to this pass?

One thing that all this opining helps with is in choosing your friends more easily.
