Another reason to soon dislike Facebook?

Fox Business reports this morning...
Microsoft could be looking into a possible acquisition of Facebook, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Microsoft (MSFT: 29.24, +0.03, +0.10%) bankers contacted the social-networking giant to see if the company has any interest in selling, but talks between the two companies, haven’t officially commenced, sources told the Journal.

Last year, Microsoft purchased a 1.6% stake in Facebook, Inc., worth close to $15 billion, and has previously shown interest in purchasing the company, but Mark Zuckerberg, founder of the site has been reluctant to sell the entire company the Journal reported.
