What do you do when you've just rung the Nasdaq bell at the opening of trading on the day your stock is listed? If you're Mark Zuckerberg, you update your Facebook page, of course.

Who else, really, could post this one: "Mark Zuckerberg just listed a company on NASDAQ." And he tagged five others with him -- Chris Cox, Cipora Herman, Dave Kling, David Ebersman and Sheryl Sandberg.

It hit right as he was marking the open of trading. And he's already received 300 likes and 22 comments on his "recent activity."
