I mean come on, Microsoft is buying EVERYTHING, its trying to become a monopoly, and there needs to be something done. They overcharge almost all the software they have, and its ridicious.
agreed. expect money to play a part in facebook if this follows through. Pro membership accounts etc etc. Something which facebook does well without.

No, not really. Myspace, at least, is a place where people can keep a hold of old friends, find new ones, and stuffs, I don't really know, find someone a little more obsessed to explain it, but thats what I use it for. I have more about my close friends on my profile than me. That is, my about me has 1 line about me, and about 5 paragraphs on my friends. I had to leave many of my old friends at the end of gr. 8, so I found it to be a good way of keeping in touch with them.

In the past I've been tempted to create an alternative to Myspace, etc, because of how stupid they were, and how better they could be. If Microsoft buys facebook, I'll just be further tempted to create an alternative, except I don't have time for it.

I wonder, if this is more than a rumor, if Microsoft will find a way to integrate facebook into Windows......

I know. I hate it now. Regardless of what anyone here says, facebook was killer until around june when they started adding all the ridiculous applications.

It was simple sweet and easy to use. Your profile was your picture followed by actually informative "about me" infromation, then it was your wall postsing. They had groups and whatever, but all in all, very simple.

Now, they have all these dumbass applications. Sure, the music thing is kind of cool, but then you have the stupid ones like the pictures on your wall, "x" me, and yesterday, i got bit by a damn zombie.

I really don't care that M$ buys it now. It was spiralling out of control anyway.
