A group of Facebook shareholders is seeking to offload $US1 billion worth of shares on the secondary market, a sale that would value the company at more than $US70 billion, according to five sources with direct knowledge of the situation.

It would represent one of the largest transactions of Facebook shares to date and points to a growing wariness among early-stage investors and employees who fear Facebook's growth cannot keep pace with its market valuation.

Do webmasters share a similar sentiment on expectation of Facebook's performance?

Do webmasters share a similar sentiment on expectation of Facebook's performance?
Yes. There is a slowly growing backlash among many users due to spam-type issues. It is much like what we saw in the early days of email. I would add that more and more businesses are putting a very low number on what they are willing to invest in managing FB. There is a growing unease about building an audience in a network controlled by someone else (a la Google, only worse).

As if no one saw this coming? The company is valued way too high in a market where companies come and go.

Have you ever tried to run ads on Facebook? Horrible ROI. If they can't get people to advertise, then were is the value?
