Wow-- It finally happened! Facebook is now a publicly traded company. This site was created in May of 2011 to provide readers a breakdown of Facebook's top shareholders while it was privately-held. Now that shares are in the public markets, ownership will become significantly more expansive. Nevertheless, our profiles remain valid, and the percentages will likely remain decent approximations of ownership for most of 2012. If you like this kind of information, take a look at our site profiling . From Justin Timberlake to Magic Johnson, Madonna to Ashton Kutcher, celebrities and sports stars are on the hunt for the next Facebook. Thanks for reading!

Mark Zuckerberg

Status: Founder, CEO
Age: 27
Residence: Palo Alto, CA
Education: Two years at Harvard University

Facebook stake: 28.2%
Value: billion

Selected TIME Magazine's "Person of the Year" in 2010, Mark Zuckerberg has been credited for connecting the world via Facebook. Raised in Dobbs Ferry, NY, Zuckerberg began writing software while in middle school and by the end of high school, he had co-written a music recommendation program called Synapse Media Player, which Microsoft and AOL reportedly offered Zuckerberg a million dollars to further develop. "Zuck" however turned them down and ran off to attend Harvard. While in his ivy covered Cambridge dorm, Zuckerberg created Facemash, a website that compared students' photos side-by-side in a fashion similar to HOT or NOT.com. After disciplinary action from the school's administration, Zuckerberg shut down Facemash and began "thefacebook," initially only available to Harvard students. Zuckerberg has since defended the site in intellectual property disputes and spurned buyout offers from Viacom, Yahoo! and other suitors. The 27 year old CEO owns 28.2% of Facebook's B shares. Using an billion valuation, Zuck's stake is worth just shy of billion.

Accel Partners

Status: Venture Capital Investor
Founded: 1983
Location: Palo Alto, CA

Facebook stake: 10%
Value: .5 billion

Though too young to drink alcohol, it must have been the 0 bottle of wine Jim Breyer offered Mark Zuckerberg at a posh Silicon Valley restaurant that helped seal the deal for ' .7 million investment in Facebook. Breyer, a managing partner at Accel, was hot for a big deal to impress Accel's less than enthusiastic limited partners. Then Associate, now Accel Partner, Kevin Efrusy, got the inside lead on an early stage financing of Facebook by walking up to the firm's Palo Alto offices, uninvited, on April Fool's Day, 2005. Efrusy's due diligence uncovered Stanford users of Facebook who not only used the website, but literally obsessed over it, even missing their classes to "poke" friends. After a week of back and forth that saw another Facebook suitor, the Washington Post, get the cold shoulder, Accel finally nailed a deal that valued Facebook at million. The .7 million investment gave the firm a 15% stake, and also included million dollar bonuses for Zuckerberg, Parker and Moskovitz (unusual in a VC round). Accel's stake (less Breyer's personal one) represents 190 million class Bshares, valued at over .0 billion.

Dustin Moskovitz

Status: Former Employee
Age: 27
Residence: San Francisco, CA
Education: Two years at Harvard University

Facebook stake: 7.6%
Value: .5 billion
Man, was this guy lucky to be Mark Zuckerberg's roommate? Currently the youngest U.S. billionaire, Dustin Moskovitz was one of the original founding Facebook cadre. Born in Washington D.C., Moskovitz met his fellow co-founders at Harvard University in 2004 where they developed the social networking site from their dorm room. Moskovitz was an economics major before dropping out of college to relocate to Palo Alto, CA to work on Facebook full-time. Credited as both Vice President of Engineering and Chief Technology Officer, Moskovitz led the technical staff, oversaw the major architecture of the site, and was responsible for the company's mobile strategy and development. He left Facebook in 2008 to start , a company that builds project management software to help companies collaborate. Moskovitz was able to garner the title of "United States Youngest Billionaire" over Mark Zuckerberg because he is eight days younger than his fellow co-founder.

Digital Sky Technologies

Status: Corporate Investor
Founded: 2005
Location: Moscow, London

Facebook stake: 5.4%
Value: .6 billion

Russian Internet holding company, , grabbed 1.96% of Facebook stock in May of 2009 when it spent 0 million at a billion valuation. Digital Sky, which is largely backed by a wealthy Russian oligarch, is the owner of Facebook clone VKontakte, the largest social network in Russia. Under the direction of Managing Partner, Yuri Milner (pictured), Digital Sky has also amassed sizeable positions in and , and is reportedly in talks to buy a substantial stake in . DST followed its initial stake in Facebook with large block purchases of stock from existing Facebook shareholders and employees.

Eduardo Saverin

Status: Former Employee
Age: 29
Residence: Miami, FL
Education: BA/BS, Harvard University

Facebook stake: 4%
Value: .4 billion
One of the three original founders of Facebook, Eduardo Saverin was a Harvard classmate of Mark Zuckerberg. Acting as the business partner of "The Facebook," in 2004, Saverin concentrated on developing advertiser relationships while Zuckerberg focused on product development. When Facebook moved its operations to Palo Alto and Sean Parker gained more influence, Saverin ended up on the losing side of a power struggle. Initially granted a 30% stake in Facebook, Saverin's position was whittled down as institutional investment rounds diluted his shares. Saverin was born in São Paulo, Brazil to a wealthy Brazilian Jewish family and was raised in Miami, Florida, the state where he initially incorporated Facebook. In 2006, Saverin graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University with a B.A. in Economics. Saverin at one point owned 5% of Facebook stock. However, as his name does not appear in the S-1 filing as a five percent owner, it's obvious that he's trimmed back his holdings substantially. Currently living in Singapore. Saverin has been spreading his bucks around and is a major investor in a new social network called , as well as , an online and mobile payment product.

Sean Parker
Status: Former Employee
Age: 32
Residence: San Francisco, CA
Education: High School Graduate,
Oakton High School,VA

Facebook stake: 4%
Value: .4 billion
Part tech genius, part bad-boy, Sean Parker has displayed uncanny foresight and comprehension of Internet business strategy. However, his fondness for hard partying and run-ins with the law have also left him as the odd-man out in business ventures. At the age of 16, Parker's Virginia home was raided by the FBI when he was caught hacking systems of Fortune 500 companies. In 1999, at the age of 19, he co-founded the file sharing (and wrong-side-of -copyright-law) music service, . At a trendy Chinese restaurant in New York in 2004, Parker met Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and became a mentor and advisor to the rising entrepreneur. Much like Napster, Parker was able to foresee Facebook's success and societal contributions only months into its inception. Acting as the company's first President, Parker negotiated a deal with Facebook's first investors Peter Thiel and Accel Partners, giving Zuckerberg absolute control of the board of directors. Ousted from Facebook in 2005 for a drug-related arrest, Parker went on to become Managing Partner of , a San Francisco-based venture capital shop. Parker still acts as an informal advisor to Zuckerberg.

Peter Thiel
Status: Angel Investor,
Member of Board of Directors
Age: 44
Residence: San Francisco, CA
Education: JD, Stanford University

Facebook stake: 2.5%
Value: .13 billion
"Just don't fk it up," is what Peter Thiel told Mark Zuckerberg when the two finalized Thiel's investment in the cash-strapped startup, according to Facebook chronicler David Kirkpatrick. In late 2004, Thiel became Facebook's first significant outside investor when he put up 0,000. Initially structured as a loan, the financing later converted to a 10.2% equity stake in the company. Born in Frankfurt am Main, West Germany, and raised in Foster City, California, Peter Thiel has been credited for launching and/or funding some of the most innovative startups of the last decade including , , and . Thiel maintains a seat on Facebook's board of directors and, in addition, serves as president of , a hedge fund, and is a Managing Partner of VC firm, . Thiel is known for being a package of contradictions due to the fact that he is a gay, Christian, entrepreneur, venture capitalist, libertarian, lawyer who, in 2010, launched the , offering 0,000 in cash to aspiring entrepreneurs under the age of 20 to drop out of school and pursue their business endeavors. Due to selloffs and dilutions, Thiel's original stake in Facebook has been reduced to 3%.

Sheryl Sandberg
Status: Current Employee
Age: 42
Residence: Silicon Valley
Education: BA, Harvard College; MBA, Harvard Business School
Facebook stake: .1%
Value: Currently million; .8 billion after shares vest
Sheryl Sandberg has served as the chief operating officer of Facebook since 2008. Formerly the Vice President of Global Online Sales and Operations at Google, Zuckerberg wooed her away from Google after a series of stealthy meetings and dinners at Sandberg's home. Though her base salary of 0K is modest, Sandberg didn't leave her Google position for nothing. She is currently sitting on nearly 1.9 million shares of Facebook stock valued at nearly million. But the real serious dinero will come down the road as nearly 40 million shares of restricted stock will vest. The one-time chief of staff for Larry Summers at the U.S. Treasury Dept. can then start her own Treasury with approximately .8 billion worth of Facebook shares.

Microsoft
Status: Corporate Investor
Founded: 1975
Location: Seattle, WA

Facebook stake: 1.6%
Value: .36 billion
Beaten in search by Google, and wary of Google's acquisitions in web video () and banner advertising (Doubleclick) , CEO Steve Ballmer (pictured) was willing to do whatever necessary to get in bed with Facebook, and seal the Seattle software goliath's foray into Web 2.0. Though interested in acquiring Facebook outright, an idea Zuckerberg nixed, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) opted for a complicated arrangement that included an advertising partnership and a small stake in the social network. Microsoft invested 0 million in the Fall of 2007 at what appeared to be a nosebleed billion valuation, which garnered Ballmer a 1.6% position. Eager that the investment not appear inflated, Microsoft welcomed the participation of Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-Shing in the Series D round. Terms also precluded from making an investment in Facebook. The deal looked pitiful when DST bought a larger stake at a billion valuation less than a year later. However, Facebook's current billion valuation means Microsoft's stake in privately-held Facebook has outperformed its own publicly-traded stock 5x.

Greylock Partners
Status: Venture Capital Investor
Founded: 1965
Location: Menlo Park, CA; Cambridge, MA
Facebook stake: 1.5%
Value: .275 billion
One of the oldest VC firms in the country, got its piece of the world's hottest tech company by getting in on Facebook's .5 million Series C round. Meritech Capital Partners also participated in the financing along with existing investors Peter Thiel and Accel, who chipped in additional funds. With this financing Facebook was valued at over 0 million, five times the amount when Accel first invested. Greylock, founded in 1965, traces its roots to founders Bill Elfers and Dan Gregory, who both worked at the country's first institutional venture capital firm, American Research & Development, in Boston.

Elevation Partners
Status: Venture Capital Investor
Founded: 2004
Location: Menlo Park, CA
Facebook stake: 1.5%
Value: $1.275 billion
Once pilloried with the moniker "world's dumbest VC investor," may shut up some of its critics with its stealthy purchases of Facebook stock. Using markets designed to provide liquidity for privately-held shares, Elevation has reportedly cobbled together a 7.5 million share position. Its 0 million investment aggregated shares when the valuation of Facebook was billion. Not too shabby for the firm whose high-profile investments in Palm and Magazine deflated rather than elevated. Elevation, which sports rocker Bono as an investment partner, manages .9 billion.

Jim Breyer
Status: Angel Investor
Age: 50
Residence: Woodside, CA
Education: BS, Stanford University;
MBA, Harvard University

Facebook stake: .6%
Value: 0 million
At the urging of an Associate (Kevin Efrusy), Jim Breyer aggressively pursued an early stage stake in Facebook in 2005. Breyer was looking to prove that his Palo Alto based Venture Capital firm, Accel, still had its mojo, and invested .7 million taking a 15% stake in Facebook, then valuing the firm at million (less than 18 months after its Harvard dorm room birth). Breyer also put in million of his own money, giving him a personal ownership position of around 1%. Breyer has been a lead or co-lead investor in over thirty consumer internet, media, and technology companies that have completed public offerings or successful mergers. In August, 2010, Fortune Magazine named him one of the 10 smartest people in technology, and "the smartest investor in technology."

Finalized January of 2011, the transaction included a 0 million investment from Goldman Sachs, million from DST, and billion from unnamed foreign investors. The deal valued Facebook at billion. The financing created controversy as it appeared to be a way for Facebook to sidestep U.S. securities laws forcing privately-held companies to make SEC filings once they reach a 500 shareholder threshold. Facebook stated it will begin disclosing financial information, or stage an initial public offering, by April 2012.

Chris Hughes
Status: Former Employee

Education: BA, Harvard University
Facebook stake: 1%
Value: 0 million
Known amongst Facebook insiders as "The Empath" for his ability to understand people, co-founder Chris Hughes was the spokesman for the social networking site.

Justin Rosenstein
Status: Former Employee
Age: N/A
Residence: Silicon Valley
Education: Stanford (did not graduate)
Facebook stake: .2%
Value: 0 million
Justin Rosenstein may in fact be the most mysterious of all of Facebook's big stock holders, having received little publicity relative to players like Sean Parker or the Winkelvii twins. Even David Choe, the graffiti artist, has gotten a New York Times piece. A software whiz poached from Google, Rosenstein played a pivotal role as an engineer with Facebook, leading the technical team that created the now ubiquitous "Like" button. Currently co-founder of software company, Asana, Rosenstein's sizable holdings show up only in the fine print of Facebook's S-1 filing.

Interestingly, Dustin Moskovitz, who owns 7.6% of Facebook (and is the co-founder with Rosentsein of Asana), lists Rosenstein as trustee of one of his massive trusts (containing Facebook stock). Apparently the "trust" runs deep between these colleagues, as Rosenstein lists Moskovitz as the trustee for his block of FB stock.

Facebook stake: .2%
Value: 0 million

He did jail time in Japan for punching a security guard at his own show in 2005. Invited to create murals in the new Silicon Valley offices of Facebook, Choes opted to get paid in stock, despite believing that Facebook was "ridiculous."

Ezra's got it right. With million bucks you'd be smiling confidently, sippin' beer and hanging out with hot chicks too. Ezra Callahan was recruited in 2004 by Sean Parker for his experience selling advertising space for . Although Eduardo Saverin had been responsible for developing advertiser relationships, Saverin was still enrolled at Harvard, and was working from the East Coast while the rest of the team was in Palo Alto. The Facebook founders were looking to expand advertising to businesses targeting the college student demographic, congruent with Callahan's experience. Callahan started doing Saverin's work, making the co-founder's position in the company less valuable. Credited as Facebook' first Product Manager, Callahan later became Manager of Internal Communications during his last two years with the company. He left the Facebook team in July 2010.

Facebook stake: .022%
Value: .7 million
American Olympic rower Cameron Winklevoss is widely known for his legal battle with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. While a senior at Harvard University, Winklevoss and twin brother Tyler, along with classmate Divya Narendra, conceived the idea for a social networking site for Harvard students called HarvardConnection, later renamed ConnectU. They enlisted the help of Zuckerberg to write code, and after Zuckerberg verbally agreed to finish the HarvardConnection site, the brothers claimed that he delayed his work and then developed competitor, "thefacebook.com." The Winklevoss brothers and Narendra sued Zuckerberg for 0 million in 2004, alleging that he had broken a verbal contract and copied their idea, in addition to illegally using source code. In 2008, after competing in the Beijing Olympics, the jocks reached a settlement with "Zuck," which was reportedly valued at million. However, in 2010, the "Winklevii"' claimed they were misled about the value of Facebook stock. A federal appeals judge recently affirmed a lower court ruling which said that the twins cannot unwind the 2008 settlement. We can't tell these guys apart, so we're not sure who's who in the photos. But we included pics that will assuredly titillate our female (and some male) readers.

Value: .7 million
Tthe Winkelvoss boys will be sitting on the other side of the court room as they are getting sued by Boston cyber-entrepreneur , who claims that he got "shtooked" by the "Winkelvii." Chang, who formed a file sharing network called i2Hub, claims that he merged his company with ConnectU in 2004 and together, they formed The Winklevoss Chang Group. Chang alleges that when the twins filed the patent application, they omitted his contribution as a co-inventor, leaving him out of the Facebook settlement loot. We based the Winkelvoss' equity positions (along with Divya Narendra) on the million in Facebook stock they reportedly received as part of the 2008 settlement (and assumed it was split three ways).

Divya Narendra

Age: 29

Education: AB, Harvard University; JD, MBA, Northwestern University (expected 2012)
Facebook stake: .022%
Value: .7 million
ConnectU co-founder Divya Narendra was born to two immigrant doctors from India and attended Harvard University in 2000, where he would later meet fellow co-founders Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss. In 2002, Narendra and the Winklevoss twins conceived the ConnectU predecessor HarvardConnection, a social network for Harvard students that would later expand to other universities. After utilizing the programming capabilities of two different Harvard classmates, Narendra approached Mark Zuckerberg for assistance. When Zuckerberg allegedly did not follow through on his agreement and later established his own social networking site, the founders of ConnectU filed lawsuit, which resulted in a million settlement. Although Narendra continued to be embroiled in lawsuits surrounding Facebook, he moved on to co-found the professional investor networking site and attends law school at Northwestern University. In a 2010 interview with a Northwestern University publication, Narendra claims that his involvement with the Facebook lawsuits is what led him to pursue a career in jurisprudence.
