Video: Facebook Has Just 200 Shareholders, David Kirkpatrick

Facebook is not in a rush to go public and is being careful about financial guidelines which could compel it, says David Kirkpatrick, longtime Fortune writer and author of the just-released,  "The Facebook Effect.."

Keeping the number of shareholders to under 500 is one key regulation and David says in this video interview that Facebook has only 200 "technical" shareholders.

We caught up him last month at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference where he was a speaker.

The book hits bookstores tomorrow.

The New York Times just published a favorable review.

TechCrunch reports on the surging traffic on Facebook.
