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.

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

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…

This worries me a little.

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

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

Facebook is so last year!

THANK YOU AMY! thats because microsoft > mac. im still mad at justin long. psh.

but i’d still rather google win. oh well, facebook is BORING.

Good for Microsoft then? I have a facebook account but I rarely use it. I’ll check it once in a blue moon lol.

i didnt rly get it.,
but hey.
google, u loose.
:D
hahahahahha. FaceSoft.

I’m thinking the same thought! That must have been his DESTINY! ANYBODY ELSE COULD HAVE EASILY DONE THAT!

facebook is will be the next frienster in about a year…

myspace is here to stay.

noo, i think facebook is here to stay

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.

Aw damn. Another Microsuck product I have to stop using.

Stupid Microsoft is going to have a monolopy on EVERYTHING!
