Facebook's 'IPO-versary'

On May 18, 2012, the social networking company, Facebook, Inc. held its initial public offering. It was one of the biggest, most anticipated offerings in history – with a whopping peak market capitalization of more than $104 billion.

Investors were practically offering up their firstborns to get in on the action. Robert Greifeld, the CEO of NASDAQ flew out to the company's Menlo Park headquarters, and chucked the suit and tie for a more "Silicon Valley look" so that he could be there in person for the historic moment when Facebook's Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg rang the opening bell.

And then – almost immediately there were problems - big problems. It was one of the biggest debacles in Wall Street's history.

Here's a quick, humorous look back at the Top 5 Facebook moments Zuckerberg did NOT "Like" brought to you by the CNBC Digital Workshop and our friends over at Buzzfeed.

One of those companies is JPay, which provides electronic money transfers and other services to about 70 percent of state prisons. But in order to get that lucrative state prison contract, the state takes a commission as well. Critics argue all the costs are passed down to families and inmates, often burdening them financially. CNBC's Dina Gusovsky Reports.

  • This photo shows the aftermath of the accident, including the burned out shell of a truck. The Lindner minivan was so crushed its wreckage cannot be seen.

    Fatal truck accidents happen nearly 11 times a day. CNBC looks at the causes, who's to blame, and why it gets little attention.
