Social network Facebook has sold its first shares last Friday. Officially, the price is set at the level of U.S. $ 38 per sheet. With these prices, is estimated to be scooped up fresh funds up to U.S. $ 16 billion.

Steps taken up by the sale of shares was taken Google's founders, Larry Page. While doing an interview with Charlie Rose on PBS television stations, Page hopes to do an IPO could tighten up the competition in Silicon Valley.

"I do not want to talk about what they do. But I think it's very interesting to see the competition - our competition. And the Valley seemed enthusiastic," said Larry Page.

In the interview, Charlie Rose then asked about the chances Facebook dethrone Google as king of search engines. However, Larry Page said with regret the closure up to the information they have.

"I think it is unfortunate that Facebook is very closed to the information they have," said Page.

Page went on to explain the position that claims Google is open, which is different from Facebook. For example, when you join on Facebook, you can not import contact information from Facebook to Google users.

Facebook considered a closed matter of user information

"From a user perspective, let's say .. I joined Facebook. I wish that I had contact. At Google, we say, please. You can retrieve a list of contacts from Google. But the problem is not to say Facebook, Google, you can not do it otherwise (import contact data), "explained Page.

For this reason that Google used to not want to share user information to Facebook. Google was looking to open up a new, willing to share.

"I think it's important that you as a Google user can retrieve your information, and retrieve them whenever you want, and placed in other places that you want," said Page.
