This feud is so, like, high school: Facebook buddies up with Microsoft

Days after the social network is busted for launching (with the help of Burson-Marsteller) a smear campaign against Google, it announces a partnership with Bing.

Just days after Facebook was, like, totally talking crap behind Google’s back with the help of this super huge PR firm, now the social networking giant is, like, totally hooking up with Google competitor Bing.
