Reading between the lines here, but Kevin Rose said
Hey everyone I wanted to give you a heads-up before the official announcement is made later today. We’ve signed on Microsoft as our new partner to sell and serve the ads on Digg. It’s a deal similar to the one Facebook signed with Microsoft last year.”
It’s a deal similar to the one Facebook signed with Microsoft last year hmmm, but aren’t Microsoft buying Facebook once the Court Case goes away..
So once the user data from Digg has been looked at Does Microsoft get first bite at it .. Cool a WIN WIN in my eyes
So what could happen with Digg, if Microsoft buy Facebook and Digg they actually fit well into Microsoft's portfolio, since they don't have a successful social network.
so with a little integration between Digg and live Passport Microsoft’s Adcenter could be the first port of call for on-line advertising spend, and we all now that Steve Balmer needs that win so much
