Poll: Is Facebook Worth $100 Billion?

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -There has been plenty of talk recently about Facebook potentially going public at a massive $100 billion valuation.

Facebook certainly has a huge reach, with over 800 million active users, and more than half of them logging in daily, either via the website or through mobile apps. Despite becoming the world's number one social networking site, though, no one knows exactly how profitable Facebook is.
Is Facebook worth $100 billion? Vote in our poll and let us know.

There have been rumors that the company has close to $4 billion in annual revenue, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

At $100 billion, Facebook would be worth almost as much as McDonalds (MCD - Get Report). It would be almost four times as valuable as Kimberly-Clark (KMB - Get Report), and have a market cap nearly twice that of HP (HPQ - Get Report).

When Google (GOOG - Get Report) went public in 2004, it was only worth approximately $23 billion. Google is now worth around $187 billion.

We want to know what you think. Do you think Facebook is worth $100 billion or not? Vote in our poll, and the results will be up Wednesday afternoon:

Do you think Facebook is worth $100 billion?

Yes- Facebook is going to change the way we interact forever.
No- Facebook is a strong business, but the growth will end sooner rather than later.
