I think we all agree that G+ is something to respect as being a "Facebook killer", not that i could careless. I do see that it will eventually cut into Facebook's bottom line probably sometime after its IPO. What I see in the future is a really close Microsoft/Facebook partnership or worse case senario is a buyout. Microsoft is already closing in on this opportunity with FB as far as owning stock and being on the board. I think for FB to thrive, long term, it will eventually have to work closer with MS, that's if G+ is a huge sucess, which i do see. Why you ask? Because I think for FB to take it to the next step it will need to be integrated into a browser, can you say Explorer! This is a huge potiental weakness for FB. The fact that G+ is deeply integrated into the chrome browser. This is something that I think FB will try to fight but will eventually cave in and have to give to Microsoft, to stay competitive with G+. I can definitely see this already with the bing integration into FB and MS, more recently, owning a part of FB. What do you think +Robert Scoble?
