And while its social implications are already well documented, its clout as a business and investment have largely gone unknown to the general public (although some very wealthy investors have gotten their hands on shares in the meantime).  The filing gave most observers their first real peek into the real business that is Facebook, revealing some interesting figures at the same time, which we break down here in our most recent infographic — Facebook’s Amazing IPO By The Numbers.
