Facebook is planning its much-publicised IPO for late 2012, so employees can concentrate on product developments for now.

Eugh. Another company with a dubious customer care reputation prepares to shackle itself to the whims of greedy shareholder speculators who only care about quarter-on-quarter growth at all costs.
