|Microsoft gauged Facebook's interest in a possible acquisition after the software giant's failed takeover attempt of Yahoo, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday. |
The newspaper reported on its Web site that Microsoft's bankers put out subtle signals to Facebook, the social networking Web site, to see if it would be open to a full acquisition.
The talks were first reported by Web site All Things Digital, owned by Wall Street Journal publisher Dow Jones.
Facebook spokeswoman Brandee Barker declined to comment on the report. Microsoft officials were not immediately available for comment.
