Netflix CEO, and Facebook board member, Reed Hastings bought 47,846 shares of Facebook last Friday at an average price of $21.03.That’s a $1 million investment for Hastings, which is really not a lot for him. According to Street Insider, which first picked up the news, this is his entire holding of Facebook shares.

Facebook’s shares have taken a beating since hitting the public markets. It’s nice to see one of the company’s insiders think it will grow.
