Facebook to stop Microsoft-run banner ads


Facebook Takes Over Its Own Display Advertising From Microsoft, Keeps Bing For Web Search

,----[ Quote ]
| When it comes to display advertising on its 
| own site, Facebook is taking full control 
| of its inventory away from Microsoft. Even 
| prior to Microsoft's initial $240 million 
| investment in Facebook in 2007, the two 
| companies had an advertising partnership 
| giving Microsoft the ability to serve 
| display ads on the social network. That was 
| a three-year deal which was up for renewal. 
| The two companies just finished 
| renegotiating it, and Microsoft will no 
| longer be serving up display ads on 
| Facebook. 


Facebook Swaps Banners for Search Deal With Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| Facebook is changing its approach to 
| display advertising and dropping 
| traditional banner advertising, which 
| Microsoft has sold on the social network 
| since 2006. But Facebook is also deepening 
| an existing search deal with the tech 
| company that will put Bing.com results in 
| front of Facebook's 400 million global 
| users. 



Facebook rewrites PHP runtime

,----[ Quote ]
| A week ago, I let ya'll know that the core
| PHP team had been brought to Facebook's
| main campus. That team were forced to sign
| NDA's, and taken to a very quiet, secluded
| meeting room where some cool new Facebook-
| backed open source project was described.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
