Eric Schmidt Says Facebook Rejected Google's Offer For Partnership

Eric Schmidt, said at the D9 conference organized by AllThingsD that
“Google’s search could be improved with access to Facebook’s data about Web surfers’ friends and acquaintances,” “We tried very hard to partner with Facebook. They were unwilling to do the deal,” he said. 😛
