They made an offer for USD 750 million but the Facebook managementdropped it because they thought of USD 2 billion.Microsoft was also on the short list of potential acquisitors, but in the end theyjust bought 1,5% from shares and started a huge advertising contract withFacebook.When things started to look tremendous, ConnectU, another Harvard basedsocial networking site claimed that the founder of Facebook stole some of thecodes from their software. In the end, the lawsuit was dropped and Facebookstarted to move forward. 2
