Cramer: Zuckerberg proving skeptics wrong

Cramer: Zucks proves naysayers wrong

Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg is proving skeptics wrong with regards to his Instagram acquisition, CNBC's Jim Cramer said.

"This is a man people continue to underestimate," Cramer said on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street " on Friday. "Facebook purchased [Instagram] for [about] $1 billion [with] 11 employees, [and was] regarded as one of the greatest follies of Zuckerberg. People were saying, 'What was he thinking,' and it turned out to be amazing. "

Cowen valued the Facebook-owned Instagram at $33 billion on Thursday. The financial firm's valuation is in line with Citigroup's valuation from last December, which was $35 billion. Facebook's stock traded up about one percent Friday morning.

Cramer added he believes Zuckerberg will continue to prove naysayers wrong. "I think WhatsApp, which everyone has had a really good laugh at, is probably going to be something that brings in a couple more billion people to Facebook."
