During this afternoon’s Microsoft-Facebook conference call the question was asked whether the new deal would include paid search. Microsoft’s Kevin Johnson and Facebook’s Owen Van Natta declined to directly answer the question and made general statements about future collaboration and that the deal a “win win win.” Nobody listening was really all that clear on what it might mean as a practical matter beyond traditional display ads and hypothetical Facebook-specific ad types soon to be announced.
However if one steps back it seems that one thing is fairly certain: A Live Search box and related ad inventory is almost sure to make its appearance on Facebook in the near term.
微软的 Kevin Johnson 和 Facebook 的 Owen Van Natta 表示，将来的合作和所达成的协议将会“双赢”。Greg Sterling 提到：“有一点可以肯定” – Live Search 搜索框和相关广告将会出现在 Facebook 上。这看起来对双方都是有着积极作用的。
