FACEBOOK get patent from IBM

What was once the biggest computer giant in the world and what is now the largest social media company today may now have something in common.  A spokesman from the social media giant Facebook reported that Facebook bought a collection of software and networking technology patents from I.B.M. for an unspecified price.  Reports from Bloomberg say that Facebook purchased 750 patents to be exact from I.B.M this past week.  In the grand scheme of things, Facebook is beginning to become a major stock to invest in during these upcoming month.  As far as the use of the patents, Im pretty sure its going to be use to expand the Facebook network even more to what it is now.  Facebook will soon have a great intellectual property value that will make them one force to be wrecked with in the social media battlefield.    For more information:
