With the Facebook IPO announcement having come just last week and the actual sale of stocks looking to be somewhere around May, this mobile ads project, should it prove true, would be a power move by Facebook to attain hype and interest by the time that stock drops.

Facebook founder’s iron-grip IPO could sink or save site

Facebook founder’s iron-grip IPO could sink or save site

Weighting of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's shares in the social network to ensure he keeps majority control after the IPO could present accountability issues, experts warn, and could prove a turnoff to investors. Zuckerberg will hold over 28-percent of Facebook once it floats, but thanks to a double tiered stock structure his shares will be worth 10x more in voting power than common stock. That will give him 56.9-percent of overall voting power, or in effect the power to veto any decision he doesn't think is right for Facebook.

Facebook's IPO filing gave us an inkling of how much money the social network expects to make when it floats this year, but also a hint of what it could spend it on: the first true Facebook Phone. In among the lengthy IPO documentation were not only details of Facebook's existing achievements in mobile but a map of the challenges yet to come along with Mark Zuckerberg's biggest fears for the future. $100m is enough to stage a big attack on the mobile market, though, and there's one obvious place to start: HP's webOS.

Facebook teleported me and I felt nothing

Facebook teleported me and I felt nothing

Facebook raised a few eyebrows when a premature alert teased teleportation technology at today's F8 conference, but it's really virtual reality that the social network hopes to make its next killer feature. To herald the upcoming support of 360-degree virtual reality content right on your Facebook wall, the company was offering to "teleport" people from San Francisco to the company HQ in Menlo Park, courtesy of an Oculus-powered headset and a whole load of cameras. Still slightly disappointed at having put on my Star Trek uniform for no good reason, I found the reality of 360 VR might not live up to Mark Zuckerberg's enthusiasm, either.
