    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg could take his company public as early as next week.

    Facebook's long anticipated initial public offering could come as early as next week, according to new reports.

    The Menlo Park-based social networking site is expecting to be approved from government regulators to distribute its S-1 public offering within days, according to All Things D's Kara Swisher.

    Some reports suggest Facebook will launch its IPO on May 18 with a corporate roadshow, featuring CEO Mark Zuckerberg, starting next Monday.

    The move would pave the way for Facebook to go public on time with most analysts' expectations of the company.

    Facebook filed its S-1 paperwork back in February paving the road for what is expected to be the largest IPO ever for an Internet company.

    The startup is expected to seek to raise up to $10 billion for a valuation up to $75 billion.
