The incredible growth of social media is showing sign to slow down.  Titans of Industry are constantly appreciating their reach as well as their market value. Latest, Facebook has improved market valuation to $87.5 billion – assuming company still holds 2.5 billion outstanding shares – when its stock closed at $35 in an auction on SharesPost.

Compare to last auction held in April this year, Facebook share price has been improved by $3. Undoubtedly, this will only blow the susceptible Tech bubble further. Recent market response of LinkedIn IPO, which almost doubled the company valuation over night, has already triggered the discussion over the possible threat of another Tech bubble under ‘incubation’.

Last year, Facebook decided to postpone its IPO for 2012 and if the growth of the company as well as Industry remains the same, certainly Facebook will be worth $100 Billion or more when it will hit the IPO floor. Also, with 685 million users currently, company is expected to celebrate 1 billion users mark by end of this year.

Last week, we had unveiled a comparative infoghraphic on growth, valuation, market share and reach of few much appreciated online companies like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. One message which was very clear and loud – “Most (I would say “All’ rather) of those companies are overvalued. Consequently, debate has been fired on “Is another Tech bubble is shaping up?”
