A Microsoft social networking website

Social Network giant, Facebook, opened its newest office in Dubai on May 30th; an unexpected event considering the disappointing IPO a mere two weeks prior. Adding to the list of more than 25 locations world-wide, Facebook is hoping to strengthen the ad sales in the region to target the 45 million users in the Africa and Middle East region. Shortly after the opening, Facebook Arabia’s Regional Solutions manager Majid Johnson announced the release of “Facebook Platinum” to be sometime in November. Ambiguously described, this exclusive membership will only be available to the countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which includes: Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman.

At 9:30 this morning Facebook offered itself to investors beginning at a debut price of $38.00 per share with an amazing jump to $42.05 within the first twenty minutes. Bittersweet to say the least, they dropped back down to the original pricing and ended with +0.61%, horribly disappointing considering the buzz around the IPO. Regardless, Mark Zuckerberg is one very rich man, but what if he didn’t want to go public? What are the repercussions now that you can buy your share of Facebook?
