Microsoft might want to wait until late November to buy a stake in Facebook. It looks like Facebook might just me a cheaper buy then.
I was talking with a Google employee last night at the Graphing Social Media conference. Aside: why are there more Google employees there than Facebook ones? I think Facebooks attitude toward the community is saying volumes to all of us. Anyway, he asked me to guess which Google service had the most page views every day. Is it search? No. Blogger? No. Google Maps? No. Picasa? No. So, what is it? Orkut. Orkut? Yeah. Now do you get why they just bought Jaiku? Now do you get why the world is going to pay attention to what Google releases on November 5?
