DST, Goldman Sachs, and Goldman Sachs clients are in the process of buying $2 billion worth of Facebook stock at a $50 billion valuation. That’s up more than double from the last time we did a story like this – only in May.

Hello, yachts and huge houses!
But who at Facebook owns how much stock?
Early employees Adam D'Angelo, Matt Cohler, Jeff Rothschild, Chris Hughes and Owen Van Natta own less than 1%
Mark Pincus and Reid Hoffman, Facebook angel investors, and owners of an important social networking patent, own a chunk of Facebook stock
Western Technology Investments, which loaned Facebook $3.6 million during its early days, also bought $25,000 worth of equity in its first funding round
