    Hi guys and gals,

    Some amazing news, facebook owners first website is for sale the bid is at $21,000 right now, I'd bid for it if I had more money at the moment.

    So it's on auction at Flippa =
    http://flippa.com/auctions/108465/Facebook-Founders-FIRST-known-website-FaceMash-com---As-featured-in-the-Movie

    And seems like CNN and forbes and countless others have mentioned it, including the new movie about facebook!

    Let me know your views, I believe one could get filthy rich by buying this site and turning it to a lead capture page or some other smart thing, or why not compete with facebook by tapping into a niche? LOL :cool:

    I can clearly see how this can be a success, facebook's current target is everyone and their dog.

    So perhaps facemash could be for adults only or more niche.

    Facebook just seems too childish to many, do to all the teens there.

    Or go further make it a gay community LOL

    This domain could be used in so many ways; i'd totally see it as the original website where you would compare your facebook friends with other friends or with farm animals with a facebook connect. Or just to keep it for the next 20 years bringing traffic to a monetized site and then make a substantial profit as it would be classified as internet history!

    Isn't it pointless to buy something with "Face" in it because Facebook peeps are trying to hold the copyright on the word "Face" and "Book"?

    Picked up a dropped domain, nicely done ;)

    Was also wondering about the copyright issues the new owner will face.

    No way that actually happens...at least not book...because e-books were around a long time before facebook...

    Face I might see happening...but there is no way they gain copyright access to the word book...

    Uhh...the domain name is still for sale...its at $30,000 now

    One would think that you would want to get this domain name asap. Especially since its in the media right now. Its never going to get more popular than it is right now...
