Facebook goes with Nasdaq for IPO

Facebook will join other big tech firms like Google, Microsoft, and Apple by trading on the Nasdaq exchange.

The winner is reportedly the Nasdaq, which has long been home to high-tech public companies. The stock will trade under the ticker, FB, The New York Times is reporting.

The Nasdaq built its business by housing some of the biggest names in high-tech -- Microsoft, Apple, Google and Intel among them -- but the NYSE has been aggressively trying to lure new issues. Last year, for instance, it landed LinkedIn and Pandora Media.
