    What's left for Zuckerberg, 27, and Sandberg, 42, to conquer? Plenty. An IPO seems more imminent than ever, and Facebook still is methodically determining its role in the film/TV distribution business. That doesn't mean, of course, that the behemoth hasn't made some key strides recently. In March, Warner Bros. launched a movie rental application for Facebook, debuting with Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. In July, Paramount made the full slate of Jackass films available for rental on the site along with some exclusive special features. Facebook showed interest in continuing to play in the content space last fall as Zuckerberg was joined by Netflix's Reed Hastings and Spotify's Daniel Ek to demonstrate how users can share what they're watching and listening to via a new class of applications.
