NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The highly anticipated IPO of social networking giant Facebook (FB - Get Report) forever changed the landscape of its market. But it became immediately legendary for the wrong reasons: the run-up was filled with hype and the IPO itself was mishandled by most of the involved parties, including Nasdaq, leaving small investors feeling shut-out and even ripped off.The attempt will forever be a black eye for the stock, which continues to be one of the most polarizing tickers to follow as it attracts even more intrigue and controversy.
