Microsoft Buys Facebook, Sort Of

Microsoft just beat out Google and will buy 1.6% of Facebook for a whopping $240 million.

That values the social networking site at $15 billion. Yes, billion! This makes 23-year-old Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg one very rich man.

Microsoft will soon be the exclusive advertising platform for Facebook.

Google, you lose.

  • jennifer

    whoa.. i wonder what it’s like to be a billionare when you’re only 23.

  • Gem

    Bloody hell! Microsoft?! Why them? They’ll probably put viruses & bugs into it so the whole thing breaks down like every other Microsfoft product ever made.

    I wish one day someone would create a YouTube or Facebook, be mega successful & popular & then NOT sell it to the highest bidder, that would rule…however, it’s never going to happen…

  • Amy

    This worries me a little.

    Gem, Microsoft doesn’t make viruses, the hackers do because more people use windows than mac.

  • Jennie

    and i don’t think facebook is even that popular. makes me wonder how much myspace is worth.

  • Nanea

  • doc

    they’re tryna make it appeal to teens more. that is why they put all that silly applications on there. & that is why EVERYONE can be on there now. at one point you had to be a college student to have facebook. myspace is here to stay. it has too many different uses. promoting music, movies, tv shows & all of that. & you dont have use ya real name.
