According to a report by The Sunday Telegraph, Yahoo and Facebook are looking into the possibility of joining together on a search engine. The potential partnership is supposedly being talked about by Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, who once upon a time worked together at Google.
As Mark Zuckerberg has made abundantly clear, he wants to one day push his company past the limitations of their own social networking site and into a much broader field, like building "a better map of how you navigate the Web than the traditional link structure of the Web." On the flip side, Yahoo under Mayer wants to revive her company's "products and engineering focus."
With Google still dominating the search engine world, a partnership between Yahoo and Facebook should offer up some competition, but could it be enough to topple or even nudge the Menlo Park, California company off their throne?
