`Facebook: The $50 Billion Question' on Bloomberg TV

Bloomberg Television's Betty Liu looks at the past, present and future of social-networking company Facebook Inc., and its founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Facebook received a $500 million investment from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Russia’s Digital Sky Technologies that values the company at $50 billion, according to three people familiar with the matter. Liu talks with Paul Kedrosky, a senior fellow at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and a Bloomberg contributing editor; Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray in Minneapolis; William Cohan, author of "House of Cards" and a Bloomberg contributing editor; and Scott Galloway, founder of Firebrand Partners and a professor at New York University.
