Ask yourself this question......why does Facebook need Yahoo? Search and mail are down Y/Y
Facebook can do this on its own. The only reason you hope and wish for a deal is so the stock doesn't slide further from here as another company takes more search from Yahoo.
Kara Swisher reports yesterday - Search is another story all together, with Yahoo in what can only be described as a dysfunctional partnership with Microsoft that numerous sources tell me Mayer is seeking to end.
