Facebook number crunching

Facebook’s IPO was always expected to generate a lot of headlines this year and now that the social network has inched that little bit closer to that $US10 billion float let’s take a closer look at Facebook’s cash pile.

Here’s an infographic from Accounting Degree Online, courtesy of All Things D, that breaks down all the numbers you need to know.
