Weekly Recap: May 14 – May 18


The Weekly Recap

This week was highlighted by the IPO of a little social media site called Facebook. Not sure if you have heard of them, but I guess it is a pretty big deal (so much so they got slapped by a $15 billion lawsuit the day they went public). Since this week didn’t have much else going on, I am highlighting the best of the web on the Facebook IPO in the Weekly Recap. Enjoy!
