IPO[edit]

Should the IPO issues be a separate article? --Ron John (talk) 16:47, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Personally I don't think it is significant enough to warrant its own article. It seems best to continue to include the IPO issues in this article. 72Dino (talk) 16:55, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
I'd agree with 72Dino for now. If the various botches with Facebook's IPO continue to be discussed (the NASDAQ glitches, the poorly assessed price), maybe then. Let's keep expanding here for now and if it seems like this is gaining WP:UNDUE weight while still having notable discussion, we could break it out then. Khazar2 (talk) 22:57, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

How is it that[edit]

…this and the main Facebook articles differ with regard to the information they glean from the same sources, and so differs also in key historic content that appears in the articles? Compare this sentence from the main article:

Its website was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his Harvard College roommates and fellow students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.[1][2]

Compare that with what appears here:

It was founded by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow Harvard University student Eduardo Saverin.[3]

Should not the two websites, drawing on the same source, present the same material?
