1, Facebook already has this huge strategic investors Microsoft
Microsoft’s investment in Facebook interests include: the right to accept the veto Facebook Google investment or acquisition by other parties. Between the two sides will probably have a wider range of legal rights, but, although there is no such legal right, Microsoft will try to prevent investment in Facebook, Zuckerberg accepted.Because Apple’s investment in Facebook means for Microsoft’s competition. Steve Ballmer from the start, the entire technology industry is the most loyal of Facebook CEO of a major, but he also believes that Zuckerberg will not sell Facebook. If Apple investors Facebook, it is no doubt that Zuckerberg stabbed in the back Ballmer, Ballmer also in the war, it will therefore be Apple and Microsoft battle leads to the Facebook company.
2, Facebook does not need the money
Facebook fast growth in the number of users, which let down but not too much attention to its revenue growth. The company still maintains a positive cash flow, reportedly has remained profitable. Zuckerberg does not seem very concerned about profits, but more focus on maintaining the status of Facebook, so the investors do not have to convene annually, but can concentrate more on the Facebook product.Microsoft investment in Facebook at that time back, the then Facebook does need the money,Asus A42-A6 battery but Microsoft was also a Facebook needs of large companies. Today, Facebook certainly does not need to break this situation. Moreover, Facebook has been received from investors all the necessary where, for example, large investors and investment in DST solve the liquidity problems of staff Facebook.
3, Apple strict control of cash
Apple is extremely strict control of their cash. Apple is not willing to Citigroup, which wants to spend money, always the first consideration of the specific details in advance, for example, the chip company Apple acquired PA Semi Quattro Wireless and mobile advertising company when they were true. In both cases the acquisition of these businesses have become Apple’s new product lines, respectively, as support for the A4 iPad and iAds chip. In addition, there are rumors that Apple is also fond of strict control of the assets, which is the very few other companies in partnership with the reason. Apple’s acquisition of assets either directly, or to create their own assets.
4, the growing differences between Apple and Facebook
This is more important: the differences between Apple and Facebook is growing. In the past few years, Apple has created a social networking site is not, but created two social networking sites, one is to provide gaming services GameCenter site, and the other is to provide music services to Ping website. Apple’s revenue now comes from half of the iPhone, and Facebook is also reportedly to build their own mobile phone based on Android operating system, you know, Android is just the most powerful rival Apple’s iPhone. Apple and Facebook advertisers are currently spending in the snatch, although not face to face directly to snatch, but at least it will last a long time.
5, the last but not least
Apple certainly hope that the social product in its access Facebook Connect, in order to maintain the operation of social products Apple, but if Apple can convince Facebook to provide this service, then Apple may not need to spend billions of dollars to get this service. In addition, Apple in the end, what harvests? Of course, may be of value share, maybe you can use Facebook to confront its most dangerous rival Google, but, regardless of whether Facebook with Apple, after all, a threat to its Google. Perhaps, the Facebook Connect with iDevices and Mac, the concentration of co-operation may cause considerable fear, but, Facebook already has control of the world, after all, 90% of the desktop computer market of the giant investors, so do not need Facebook to invest in Apple .
