Microsoft and Facebook deepened their relationship (beyond MS’ 1.6% stake in FB) by announcing a search deal today. With this expansion folks will now see their friends “influence” (status updates, opinions) when performing searches on Bing.
Here is my favorite quote:
“Mr. Zuckerberg also said that his company had decided to partner with Microsoft over other search companies because it was an “underdog.””
I don’t think many have said that about the big M… I am sure that Ballmer had some choice words for Facebook’s CEO after the press conference.
