Could facebook be the world’s largest company?

The expected flotation value of Facebook is $100 bln dollars which places it around half the size of Microsoft and much lower than Apple by pure market capitalization alone. So Facebook will not be the worlds largest company but it will be one of the largest and possibly in the top fifty companies by market capitalization.

Of course in time, if Facebook finds a way to monetize its offering to a.higher level then it could grow significantly.
