In a civil lawsuit filed by Paul, he claims to have signed contract with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to develop and design a website which was named as “TheFaceook.com”. The term of the contract entitled Paul $1,000 fee and 50% of stack in product which eventually launched as TheFacebook.com, according to lawsuit.

Facebook is one of the most popular social networking site across the globe and have many promising future aspects in kitty. Most of the people are awaiting the future IPO of this company which is schedule to launch some where early next year. It was also very interesting to know the Growth of Facebook & acquisition efforts in last 5 years.

Ceglia’s suit contends the contract with Zuckerberg was dated April 2003. Some of the previous accounts of Facebook’s history have said that Zuckerberg was at work on other projects during that period and did not come up with the idea for Facebook until later. The Internet domain name for “TheFacebook.com” was registered in January 2004, according to Network Solutions online registry of domain names.

  1. I really love Facebook. It seemed like it would be a great place to try some advertising since just about everyone uses it. I’ve been marketing on Adwords for years, so I thought I knew what I was doing. Well I was dead wrong. I blew $200 fast advertising on FB. I had kind of given the thought up but I saw a thread about this Facebook ads guide on the Warrior forum. Looks interesting but I’m wondering if you have had any luck with it? Here’s a link to it. Thinking about giving it a try to see if I was really doing something completely wrong with Facebook before or not. Help?
