The recent Facebook IPO filing and its expected $100 billion valuation dominated recent headlines. Much of the speculation was about profitability, and how the new public structure will change the company. Since my Mom is a nationally renowned astrologer (Jacqueline Bigar), I decided to pick up the IPO crystal ball and offer five Facebook futures. Here we go:
1) The Rise of Sheryl Sandberg
As profit expectations grow (see next prediction), expect Zuckerberg to take a back seat over the next few years, graduating to chairman. In his wake Sandberg will become the leading lady of Facebook owning the role that already matches her compensation.
