Can This Tech IPO Change the Game?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and consumer-goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discuss topics around the investing world.

In one of the most-followed storylines of the year, Facebook filed its S-1 form with the SEC on Wednesday, setting in motion its eventual debut around May. Despite the glut of high-profile tech IPOs we've seen come to market in the past 18 months, this remains undoubtedly the most highly anticipated offering of the bunch. Only 8 years old, Facebook has revolutionized the way people connect. With around 800 million users, the company certainly had already attained a legendary scope. In this video, Andrew discusses the potential implications and gives his expectation for this soon-to-be big-time stock.
