[photogallerylink id=35622 align=left]Graffiti artist David Choe painted murals on the walls of the social network’s offices in Palo Alto, California, in 2005. When getting paid, he was offered either thousands of dollars in cash OR a payment in stocks which was worth just as much as the cash at the time…
The New York Times reports that the “shares owned by the artist, David Choe, are expected to be worth upward of $200 million when Facebook stock trades publicly later this year.”

The famous Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s co-founder, 27, has “533.8 million shares, worth $28.4 billion based on a company valuation of $100 billion, or $53 a share.”
