Facebook share prices are “likely” to break the IPO cost of the billion dollar social network. Does this mean that the Facebook staff is about to become a lot happier with its stock options? Well, as the stock has slowly become unlocked and the staff has been able to sell it off, the shares have felt the downward pressure, seeing a 3.7% dip when the first lock-up period expired after the IPO. Facebook employs over five thousand people and has created a thousand new millionaires with their stock options. Facebook is the golden child of the startup scene and it’s been a success story that’s become a major technological force. However, the risk of starting and working at a startup is always present.
