we'll go live to the social media's headquarters for the company ipo. >> wardrobe controversy. a male student suspended for showing up to school in a dress. >> behind the scenes as mick jagger gets ready to host the season finale of "saturday night live." good afternoon and welcome to news 4 at 4:00. i'm pat lawson muse. >> that picture was trouble. i'm jim handly. firps at 4:00 today millions of people had their eyes on facebook all day today not the latest status update but the price of the ipo stock. >> wall street is about to close any second now. we'll take a look at the live board where you can see the stock is closing just above 38. it started at $38 a share and then jumped to $42 earlier. there was even a snafu on the nasdaq. things got a little bit of a late start today but right now as you can see the closing number there just about $38. joining us live now from outside facebook headquarters in california is cnbc's julia boorstin. did the ipo live up to the hype
4:01 pm
today? >> reporter: well, i think there actually is a question of whether the ipo was over hyped. there was a lot of talk that we might see a big pop after the stock started trading today but we didn't really see as much of a pop as a lot of people had been looking for. one of the issues that could have hampered expectations, the excitement here, was the fact that the nasdaq said that facebook shares were going to start trading around 11:00 a am eastern. then they revised that and said 11:05. it was only a half hour after that that the shares actually started trading. there were some technical snafus and in that half hour or so when people were waiting that might have really dampened the excitement. >> interesting. so, julia, what are the experts saying now? should the average person buy this stock now or should we wait a while? what's the conventional wisdom out there? >> well, here's the thing. facebook's valuation is about $104 billion now. whether investors buy this stock
4:02 pm
really depends on what their expectations are for facebook's growth. this is a company that did $3.7 in revenue in 2011 $1 in net income. the valuation is really all about the future. future expectations for advertising growth and future expectations for mobile growth in particular. if you're going to buy into this stock you're buying into the future plan for facebook which is perhaps diversification away from advertising and when it comes to advertising to expectation that mobile will be huge. right now there are about 500 million people who access facebook on mobile devices but facebook only started putting ads on mobile in march. this is a relatively new thing and when you look at mobile, users are growing faster than revenue from those users. so that is something that facebook really needs to tackle moving forward. >> a lot of room to grow. julia, thanks so much for bringing us up to date. >> thanks. we're following breaking news out of rockville police investigating a shooting outside

trayvon martin case raising new questions but not necessarily answer i answering whether george zimmerman killed the unarmed teenager in self-defense. this video shows martin buying skittles and iced tea at a convenience store in florida. minutes later he was dead. according to a report the original lead detective believed zimmerman caused the fatal fight by confronting martin who wasn't doing anything criminal. he wanted zimmerman to be charged with manslaughter. also pictures of zimmerman's injuries and a toxicology report that showed martin had the active ingredient of marijuana in his system. there was also an interview with martin's father who did not think it was his son calling for help in the much publicized 911 call. zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder and has pleaded not guilty. the jury in the john edwards trial has just gone home for the weekend. they will resume deliberating on monday morning. their vote could land the former presidential candidate behind bars. early this afternoon jurors asked to see several exhibits

we're ready for some answers. we have the questions. does sunscreen lose its strength over time? what is the difference between memorial day and labor day and we have a question about sunless tanning lotions. it's almost memorial day weekend and we have sun safety questions in today's ask liz. >> sort of a tanning memorial day sort of compendium for you today. >> good. i like that word. a sunny day to start us off. first up from jerry in oxon hill jerry has old bottles of sunscreen from last year. and he wants to know, does it lose its strength over time? >> the american academy of derick tollology helped us with this answer. it says the u.s. food and drug administration requires that all sunscreens stay at their original strength for at least
4:39 pm
three years. that means sunscreen that you bought last year should still protect you this year. however, if you aren't sure when you purchased your old sunscreen, it is best to toss it out and buy a new bottle. some sunscreens do have expiration dates on the bottle so simply check for that. that is a good new thing they're doing. >> that is good. next question from sylvia in the district. she wants to know if there are any harmful health effects from using sunless tanning lotions. >> everybody likes to look like they have color without going in the sun. we contacted lombardi cancer institute at georgetown university for this question. it says the only harmful effects of sunless tanning lotions is that some people are allergic to them. some people also complain about skin stains caused by the lotions. you should also know that sunless tanning lotion does not protect you against sunburn. remember, many doctors recommend wearing sunscreen whenever you're outside and they suggest applying that sunscreen liberally 20 minutes before you go out and cover all that exposed skin. don't forget the tops of your ears, backs of your legs, and
4:40 pm
the back of your neck. limit your sun exposure between 10:00 and 4:00 when that sun is the strongest. >> or fake and bake. remember gout to put thyou got sunscreen over it. the final question from tom in d.c. tom asks what is the difference between veterans day and memorial day? >> good to get this straight. we went to the department of veterans affairs. it says many people do confuse memorial day with veterans day. memorial day is a day for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country. it is particularly meant to honor those who died in a battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. now, veterans day, which is in november, is a day that is set aside to thank and honor all those who served honor ashleyy in the military in war time or in peace time. so if you've got a question you'd like us to consider for ask liz send it to us at nbc washington.com. you can also connect with me on twitter. just search liz crenshaw and on facebook by searching liz crenshaw's consumer watch. coming up on ask liz at news 4 at 5:00, how much sunscreen is
4:41 pm
enough? and are those uv sunglasses worth the price? what is important to keep in mind when choosing a sunscreen for yourself or your kids? we'll tell you at 5:00. >> all right. safe tanning until then. the sun is still out. you say 4:00. >> that's right. >> that is the strongest. >> before 10:00 and after 4:00. you'll want to be there in the middle of the -- you won't want to be there in the middle of the day. when news 4 at 4:00 continues new developments in the case of a missing girl in arizona. plus all eyes will be on the skies this weekend for the air show
