The social network is longing to raise $5 billion at its IPO, which can value the company at up to $100 billion easily the largest public offering in Silicon Valley history.
The biggest social networking service in the world is waiting for a green signal from Securities and Exchange Commission to declare its prospectus effective. Facebook has already revised its prospectus thrice since filling for IPO in February.
