Mucho mini-roundup on Facebook, Microsoft and Google

– Terrence Russell says Microsoft really didn’t overpay for it’s Facebook stake.

– A journalist shill says Facebook is tripling up with some hedge funds while the going’s hot.

– A credible source tries making sense of it all and concludes by inference that people never learn (even if the lesson just whacked their friends on the side of the head).

– Still others are laughing that the joke’s not on them.

Is this just a distraction? Did Google get Microsoft to pay a quarter-billion for some ad potential just as online advertising begins slipping?

UPDATES:

– Kara Swisher annihilates, with courtesy and professionalism.

– Rumors by fake people have been picked up by the real. Note: that doesn’t necessarily validate anything.

– Josh Catone opines it may be all about search.

– Paul Kedrosky says Microsoft is now cursed.

Meanwhile…

More apps targeting humans with no money. And bad credit. All those ads, and no buying power. Hmm.

STILL MORE:

The Microsoft investment instantly makes MySpace worth $65 billion.
