Yahoo: Facebook is “creepy”

CEO Carol Bartz admits Facebook could be their biggest rival.


She called off a blogger by a “f**k you”, so we know she doesn’t mince words.

In a recent about-all interview with US Today, where she discussed the company, her role, economy and even politics, she also talked about the role of social networking for the future of the interwebs.

When asked if she considers Facebook as the search portal’s rival, she calls out Facebook as “creepy” for gathering information on its users, although she admits it could be useful. Bartz doesn’t think they’re a direct competition as of yet but “they could be. If they keep going, they will have the vault of information on everybody in the world, and that’s valuable.”
