facebook-ipo-google-mark-zuckerberg-getty.jpgFacebook filed to go public on Thursday (May 4), with the IPO launch set for May 18, valuing itself as much as $96 billion.

Google is the current record-holder for its 2004 IPO, which valued the company at $23 billion. Google is now worth around $200 billion.

So does the Facebook IPO really deserve the hype? Is it really more valuable than Google?

Analysts are split on the issue. According to the Wall Street Journal, more than 900 million people now use Facebook, but some are wondering whether things are slowing down for the company.

What do you think is more valuable: Google or Facebook?
