Facebook and Baidu To Team Up Over Social Network In China [businessinsider.com]

Facebook has struck a deal with Baidu, the biggest Chinese search engine, to open a jointly-owned socialnetwork in China, according to reports in the Chinese press, citing inside sources.

These sources said the new venture wouldn't involve Facebook.com, which is blocked inside China like many more social networking sites, but a jointly owned, new social networking website. It's unclear when the site could launch: joint ventures need to be approved by the Chinese government and that can take a while, and they have to staff it up with experienced executives that both sides can agree on.

When the borg (social-engineering crowd control network a.k.a. "social" network) is partnering with the countries around the globe to get more and more "on their graph", it is time to pay attention and quit it.

One more note to Brett here : the WebmasterWorld is either part of borg, or not. I know it is difficult to stay independent, but Brett, do your best please. If WebmasterWorld is not in a game of selling their user's info to borg's network, it would be a nice feature to have an ability to disable Tweet and Facebook Like buttons, for registered users at least.
