This would probably be filed under the “probably never but definately possible,” but it seems that a rumor is floating around the blogosphere (as well as a media source) that Google may purchase Facebook.
(Thread Watch) GOOG is looking at Facebook at a 2.3bil price. This could be a total joke on their part, but the source is solid.
But with their rival Yahoo! drowning in talks over Facebook, would it make much sense for Google to pick up yet another social network, especially for over $2 billion?
