Is Your Facebook Profile Worth $100?

Don't worry, Facebook isn't planning to charge you for your profile. But according to Slate, you're already worth about $100 to them. How do they figure? Simple. With Facebook shares expected to be around $30 to $40 when its stock goes on the market, the entire company is estimated to be worth somewhere around $100 billion. Facebook also announced recently that it's close to securing 1 billion active users. That means users are worth an average of $100, according to Slate.

However, in reality, the company makes a fraction of that amount in revenue off of individual users. TechCrunch estimates $4.84 per user per year. The real value is in Facebook's growth, which has kept it a central figure -- the central figure -- in the social media game for years. It's that endless looming potential. Although, if it keeps growing, they're going to have to look beyond Earth for new users. Do you think your Facebook profile is worth $100?

    Not because of me. However from my likes and friends facebook can send the correct ads and to me and therefore easily make $100 off me. It's smart in a way. Come share your opinion at Political Buddies forum!

    Mine is worth a billion, trillion dollars!
    Right--the only time I've logged into it in the past two years has been to unfriend this spamming jerk that I thought I'd unfriended a long time ago. Other than that I only log in to work on pages I'm involved with. I could care less about my profile.

    I really don't think it is, personally, but if they want to pay me $100, then yeah, I totally think my whole profile is worth 100 bucks. Ahaha, my computer froze, and when I clicked back on my comment, it said to vote again, so I did. But I clicked it a million times. :P Don't say I'm bad;)

    During it's incpetion, it was orginally conceived for college student to network.
    Not any longe. My profile is almost blank and I've deleted most pictures and posts so there's not much value having me as a member, no personal data and habits to share with marketing agencies.

    I doubt it, only if you get famous. But FB doesn't delete profiles generally, just inactivates them. It's all about money.

    But the second they start giving my confidential information away, I am out of there. I am close to leaving already, only my family members keep me there.

    I doubt they will ever find a way to generate $100 in profit from us.
    Regardless of how much of our personal information they sell.

    Every time you click any link online, you're making a (tiny) profit for someone, somewhere.
