Here's one take on the story.
Facebook and Yahoo! are in talks about forging an alliance that could spell the end of Yahoo!ís relationship with Microsoft.
Report: Yahoo Search Alliance With Facebook [telegraph.co.uk]
Yahoo and Facebook are not currently in talks about forming a search alliance or building a search engine together, according to my sources, who scoffed about such a deal reported in a thinner-than-tissue-paper post by the Telegraph earlier today.
In addition, Yahoo is not anywhere near ending its search partnership with Microsoft, although new CEO Marissa Mayer has been in touch with the software giant about improving performance that has been less than lackluster over the course of its history so far.

Has this just been a misunderstanding? Either way, i'm sure Yahoo is in talks with Microsoft and Facebook about all manner of matters.
