The numbers at Facebook just keep going up and up.
The Peninsula-based social networking site has a small corner of its company going to
Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers for a cool $38 million of stock.
Current shareholders gave up their shares at a valuation of $52 billion. The valuation is a $2 billion jump from from the recent number thrown out by Goldman Sachs when it was part of a $1.5 billion investment round.
Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers made billions of dollars off early investments on companies like Google and Amazon.
