I heard Microsoft bought Facebook for $240 million and looked into it and found that Microsoft didn't buy Facebook, it only made a $240 investment in it for 1.6 percent of the company, according to Associated Press, who reports that Facebook is worth $15 billion. Is something nuts here or did News Corp. get a spectacular deal for buying Intermix, which owns 53 percent of MySpace (but reports say it plans to buy out the rest) for only $580 million?
