    shares are expected to sell at over $100.. so unless you are already a baller... you're not going to get in on it.

    johndoe, pretty much nothing. maybe. its just who owns the company.

    when companies go public, the financial side of the company is no longer private information, and anyone can buy sock if they want. So, the shareholders profit will tend to be the motivating factor in alot of company decisions. (eg. more ads, pay for top 10 search results, etc)
