Goldman Sachs sent the document to potential investors which stated the social network's plans to increase the number of shareholders above 500. This would trigger the need to report financials. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly been wary of an IPO, but investor interest in the company has been strong.

The Wall Street Journal says the full-year 2010 revenue will likely reached $1.9 billion-$2 billion.
