VentureBeat ? Will Yahoo’s stock price kill acquisition of Facebook? Facebook IPO? Matt Marshall over at VentureBeat asks the question will Yahoo’s recent stock price drop (allegedly due to lower online advertising spending by financial service firms and auto makers) have an impact on a rumored Yahoo!/Facebook deal.
Facebook would be an interesting acquisition for Yahoo! but an expensive one for sure. Some have speculated that Yahoo! would have to pay upwards of $1 Billion for Facebook. But with perhaps the best stable of Web 2.0 talent out there today, certainly Facebook would seem to be desireable property for Yahoo!
I still haven’t tried Facebook out yet and need to get around to doing that now that they are more open to non student accounts.
