Infographic: Billion-Dollar Startups

Price tags for social media companies have skyrocketed since Facebook debuted in 2004.  These startups were valued at a billion dollars or more.

This infographic from staff.com compares the company founding dates, estimated value, number of employees, and total capital raised for 13 companies from Facebook through Instagram.

Facebook’s market value is currently higher than all of the others combined, even without including its recent acquisition, Instagram, in the total. But it’s not the largest company in the group — Groupon has the most employees.

Take a look.
