Facebook for Sale

Apparently, Facebook is up for grabs. The desired sale price? A measly $2 billion, according to a Business Week article entitled "Facebook's on the Block". However, it is "the seventh-most heavily trafficked site on the Internet." It will be very interesting to see who snatches up this popular social network site and what they do with it.

Let's hope it doesn't end up like MySpace. That site is always having problems - won't load, often down for repairs and whatnot, and just recently I've started getting lots of spam emails. It kind of makes me wonder why we put up with it at all. Imagine if our regular email service was constantly on the fritz. We'd just jump ship and find a new service. But we stick it out with MySpace. Why is that?
