Facebook IPO: five key figures set to make billions

As Facebook prepares to go public, five key figures, from Bono to LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, are set to make billions.

Facebook’s first President is widely credited with turning Mark Zuckerberg’s project from a dorm room operation to a global business.
