The Wall Street Journal is reporting in a front page article that Yahoo and Facebook are in discussions. It pegs the deal at nearly $1 billion which is significantly more than News Corp. paid for MySpace (approx. $580 million) a year ago, which is a much larger site.

While I do not have a WSJ link to the full article, basic info on the potenital deal is presented on their website front page [online.wsj.com] and an additional article can be found here [thestreet.com].

>> If those that graduated know nothing of facebook pre 2005 and anyone over say 35 isnt interested in social networking sites and Facebook is aimed at students then where is the stickyness for the long term?

who said they can't make it easy to stay in touch after college?

Exactly...all things start somewhere. My fellow marketers know of the concept of "Tipping Point". The point at which trends begin and the reasons for them.
