IPO of Facebook
I am not sure, some people say that when Google issued their IPO and it came good there was a big surge in the market and many people who made money went for either divorce or marriages. It happened with Cisco and they are expecting some thing on similar lines with Facebook.
As per some experts of the markets field once the lock-in period of six months is over, there would be thousands of new multy-millionaires who would go on shopping spree. They are expecting to see big differences in relations.
There are some facts to back-up their statements like most of the employees and shareholders are in the age group of 20-30 and as soon as the lock-in period ends they shall be having cash in hand therefore would go for settling their lives. Some may even go to end old relations and start allover again. So you cannot predict about it right now. This could go either way.
According to market sources, the people who shall be making money through the IPO of Facebook would gain extra confidence to plan their lives in a new way with a difference. Some of them may feel inspired by the marriage of Mark Zukerberg with Priscilla Chan and go to follow him. After all, who does not want to follow their ideals be it in any fields?
I am most surprised to see the wedding planners and divorce specialist ready and planning for the prospective customers whom they are expecting just after the lock-in period ends in six months. An interesting event to follow, I guess, as Facebook is a wider platform for discussion and talking things in a bigger way and imagine the number of people there discussing and spreading news we can expect some thing to this effect.
