  1. Dear Damian Davila,
    Thanks for the info, I want to know in your viewpoint, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of facebook is worth $two billion at age 25 presently, thats a 20% keeping of facebook’s $10 billion valuation he has, and I have a sensation that facebook will finally be value $50-100 billion upon the IPO, notably given that they are at all times creating new qualities to the site. What I’d like to know is if you consider that zuckerberg will come to be truly worth $10 billion by age 27, 28 or 29? What do you presume?
    Good Job!
