VOTE: Does Facebook Owe You Dividends?

We all contribute content to Facebook for free — 2.7 billion likes and 250 million photos a day — and some argue that makes all of us entitled to a portion of the company’s $100 billion value.

But does liking, sharing links or uploading photos really entitle us to a stake, like the $50 that The New York TimesNick Bilton thinks his own contribution is worth?

If that tongue-in-cheek estimate were true, it could set an odd precedent and possibly deter other Internet ventures from raising money publicly.

We’re curious to know what you think: Upon going public, should the social network provide some form of financial compensation to its roughly 850 million users for contributing content?
