Today, Microsoft reported buying a small stake in Facebook worth $240 million, with the deal valuing Facebook at $15 billion. That is an incredible amount of money for a website that wasn’t making money.
Of course, we could have argued that when Google bought YouTube last year, profit was a challenge for YouTube as well. I thought back then that buying YouTube was a very smart strategy, and I think that Microsoft buying Facebook is also a wise move.
Maybe now that I’m an owner of Facebook (I have some MSFT shares, and MSFT owns part of Facebook, therefore I own part of Facebook) I can get them to listen to my ideas about not spoofing me.
They can spoof any of you guys, just not me. 😛
