Shut up, it’s hard to sing in titles…
Word has it that Microsoft or Google are going to buy a 5-10% stake in Facebook, as well as gain the right to put up advertisements on Facebook as it expands to foreign markets (Microsoft already holds those rights in North America).
Apparently VPs from both companies have been in to make pitches to Facebook.
I’m sorta hoping that Google wins it… just because so much of my online life more or less revolves around Google already, why not?
Also, Google has some vested interest in helping to “jailbreak” some information from Facebook (mostly for search indexing purposes (BOO), but hopefully more then that will come in the future).
On the other hand, if Google looses, maybe they’ll come up with their own service… hmm….
