    Facebook, Yahoo in Talks on Search Collaboration

    Social media network Facebook Inc. ( FB ) and Internet firm Yahoo Inc. ( YHOO ) are in talks about an alliance which would allow the two Silicon Valley-based companies to collaborate on search functionality, the Sunday Telegraph reports, without citing sources.

    The newspaper says Yahoo's new chief executive Marissa Mayer and Sheryl Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook, both former employees of Google Inc. ( GOOG ), have met to discuss closer collaboration between the two companies.

    The Sunday Telegraph says any deal to emerge from the talks could lead to Microsoft Corp. ( MSFT ), which currently powers Yahoo's search functionality, being supplanted from its relationship with Yaho
    U.K. representatives for Facebook couldn't immediately be reached for comment Sunday.
