Hosted by

Goldman Sachs is investing $450 million in Facebook, with another $50 million from a Russian firm called Digital Sky Technologies and a billion more from so-called "high net-worth clients." The deal values Facebook at $50 billion — more than eBay, Yahoo or Time Warner. Felix Salmon is finance blogger for Reuters.
