Un-friends shareholders

Ever feel like someone wished you didn't exist? Well if you're a Facebook shareholder, that person may be Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook's CEO delayed going public as long as he could. In the end, he only took the company public because Securities and Exchange Commission rules forced him to. On the day of the IPO, Zuckerberg told Facebook's employees that it wasn't his mission to go public. Reminder not necessary.
