Google does not want to buy Twitter right now 09 March 2009

On PBS's Charlie Rose show,  Google CEO Eric Schmidt made it clear that they are "unlikely to buy anything in the short term".

In the interview journalist Charlie Rose asked, "People are excited these days, the lost several months about Twitter. Does Google want to buy Twitter?"

Schmidt answered, "I shouldn't talk about specific acquisitions. We're unlikely to buy anything in the short term partly because I think prices are still high. And it's unfortunate I think we're in the middle of a cycle. Google is generating a lot of cash. And so we keep that cash in extremely secure banks."

"And we'll wait that out. From our perspective, I think the YouTube application and the DoubleClick acquisition which are the two large ones we did last year and the year before, have been phenomenally successful."

Facebook Backs Down On Terms Of Service Change 18 February 2009

Facebook has backed down on changing its terms of use. That's after tens of thousands of its users pressured the company. The social networking site had changed its policy to say that it could keep copies of the content you post, even if you close your account. After the uproar, officials say they can not claim rights to your material.

Facebook Privacy Officer Chris Kelly says, "We wanted to be very, very clear with users about how important their trust is to us and roll back to the old version of the terms of service. which we did last night."

Officials say they will rewrite their terms of service to make it easier to understand. They also warn customers that even though the company can't keep copies of your content, the same doesn't hold true for the friends you share your information with online.
