Codebreaker

A mixed bag for Facebook

John Moe Jul 21, 2010

Hi Mark. Listen we have some good news and some bad news. Good news first? Okay sure. Facebook now has half a billion users, more than all but two countries in the world.

Bad news? Some dude in New York, guy you used to work for, says that he owns your company.

So yeah, so okay. Have a great day!

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
