SURELY NO ONE could have predicted the success that was to come for Facebook when it launched as a network for college students a decade ago.
After all, it looked like this.
Today, its creator is thought to have a net worth of $31 billion, with Bono’s 2% investment in the company thought to be worth about $1.5 billion.
That’s more than he’s earned through his entire music career, and the total fortune of Sir Paul McCartney, the world’s richest musician.
Now that was a sound investment. Happy birthday, Facebook.
