    It is rumoured that Microsoft will swap Bing in return for shares of Facebook after the IPO on May 18th. I honestly think when you read the article below, it's a very strong argument for Google taking second place in the the next few years and it becomes even clearer why Google+ is so important to their plans.

    The article in full at Business Insider.

    No telling what is going to happen next. I have done some keyword searching using bing and yahoo with 2 separate windows. The search results are the same. If everyone keeps on buying out another search engine. Its going to be harder to have the SEO ranking, even though FB and bing are growing. Its getting more and more interesting every day.

    That's a huge move from FB. They seem to continue to grow more like Google and they are competing with even the largest Search Engine. Who knows what they plan to do next?
