Darian Shirazi — a former front-end software developer for Facebook who now runs Radius, a small-to-medium business sales intelligence company located here in San Francisco — talked to Bloomberg West recently. During the interview, the young CEO called Facebook (that social media doohickey with which you may be familiar) "the most important company of our lifetime." And you know what? He's probably right. How so? Well, Shirazi goes on to point out that it's "integrated into every almost application," adding that Facebook might even be "more important than Google."
Facebook's IPO will debut later this month with at around $30 per share and a $80 billion valuation. It will reportedly make company cofounder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg richer than Microsoft CEO Bill Gates.
