Facebook has reportedly raised funds from Goldman Sachs and a Russian investor in a deal valuing the social networking site at $50bn (£32.3bn).
The New York Times said that Goldman was investing $450m in Facebook, and Digital Sky Technologies another $50m.
Goldman's involvement will also raise speculation that Facebook might float on the stock market.
