Default Facebook acquired!!!

Wow, what will this say about Microsoft? Now they have a piece of the Internet cyberlife and knocked out Google for the bid. Myspace has some serious competition now.

Google lost? Oh well. I was thinking about buying stock in google. I have $8000 worth in waste management, I was thinking about selling half that to buy some google stock. But google has to start winning things like this, lol.

Should invest some of your stock in disney, I made some decent money from those pirate movies.

Great. Facebook was one of the last if not the last online communities in which 1) worked 2) wasn't filled with spam and porn 3) had a great user interface and features 4) pretty good support 5) wasn't filled with little 15 year old girls who think that showing their "cleave" and putting lyrics from songs as their photo description...I just hope Microsoft doesn't change how they work that site right now. I actually like that one. Myspace has just gotten out of control and is almost like the dirty/no where in life step sister.

I don't even go on Myspace anymore. Forgot my username and password anyways . It's pretty uncensored on there, but what I hate the most is the spam mails I keep getting. I would also get tons of request for useless "friends", people I don't even know just so they can have a high friend count. I like how it's highly customizable with tons of codes, but it's not fun anymore.

Microsoft will try to make Facebook better but I don't think they will change it drastically to drive away existing members. Facebook could boost the number of users so Microsoft may do a lot of marketing and advertising for it since they're so darn rich.
