Facebook.com founder Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly in negotiations to sell the company for $1 billion-- certainly a hefty price tag considering that competitor MySpace.com sold for a "mere" $580 million just last year despite having nearly four times as much site traffic. However, Facebook.com has fared well in the social networking space, demonstrating consistent growth in its user base over the past few years. The site's appeal among certain desirable demographics also underscores its potential for revenue generation via online advertising.
