* Updated 10:24PM, British Summer Time. Microsoft has got the ads and has to pay $240 million for the Facebook "share". Google lost, and News International didn't seem to be interested. Microsoft's $240 million buys a paltry 1.6 per cent share of Facebook. Sheeesh.
A REPORT in today's Wall Street Journal said that Facebook is set to plump for a partner and the choice is between Google and the Vole.
The report claimed that one or the other will buy a minority stake in the " winner" to sell ads on Facebook but as the "social networking" site is valued at an astonishing $15 billion, that's still going to cost either a small fortune.
Apparently both the Vole and Goodie Two Shoes are fighting tooth and nail to pick up the "social networking site" - one of the most extraordinarily irritating places on the world wide wibble.
With the exception of Whackypedia, that is. µ
