It finally arrives – social media giant Facebook will file paperwork for an initial public offering (IPO) on Wednesday, February 1, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

Currently Infineon and Google, whose initial public offerings stood at $5.9 billion and $1.67 billion, respectively, hold the tech IPO crowns.
