Microsoft Wins Stake in Facebook

Update: Microsoft ended up paying $240 million in a deal that values Facebook at $15 billion, according to CNET.  For those of you keeping score at home, that’s 1.6% of Facebook.  Doesn’t sound like a lot, but I bet they’ll figure out something to do with it…

From Scobleizer and CNET.

Apparently Microsoft has beaten Google in the fight to buy part of Facebook (according to the latest rumors, anyway).

From Web Community forum, apparently Microsoft’s Hank Vigil was in Palo Alto yesterday, which suggests that he was closing the Facebook deal.

We’ll see what happens…
