So said RBC Capital Markets News Corp analyst David Bank using a $357 per user valuation–and then, thankfully, revealed that he was joking.

Bank says there’s no way to know what Facebook is worth (hear hear!), but he puts MySpace’s value at $5 billion. He also notes that Facebook is growing far faster than MySpace, and is therefore worth a lot more per user.
