Facebook and Microsoft Discuss Deeper Ties [news.cnet.com]

Facebook and Microsoft are discussing an agreement that would significantly expand the search relationship the pair have shared for many years, said several people with knowledge of the situation.

According to those sources, that includes the possibility for the software giant's Bing search service to mine anonymized data from consumer usage of the social-networking site's recently introduced Like buttons.

I don't mind the Bing search, but I wish they could use another mapping program. Bing maps may be OK in the US, but in Asia they're weak.
