Facebook and Google Plus have announced that they are to buy each other, in a shock move that will surprise no one.

Facebook has been losing customers since the launch of Google Plus and, over the past month, the social network created by the Silverspoon twins in partnership with Darth Zuckerberg has been redesigning to compete.

Google Plus has been growing rapidly during its beta test phase, but it has a long way to go to catch up with the 700 million Facebook users. So, today Google announced that it will buy Facebook in a deal valued at $80 billion.

Facebook issued a simultaneous press release to say it is buying Google Plus in a deal valued at $12.50.

"That's how much we think Google Plus is worth," said a Facebook spokesperson on Twitter. "Google Plus is bound to fail so Google should cut its losses and sell it to us.

"We are not at all worried about the emergence of Google Plus. That's why we have redesigned Facebook to look just like it."

A spokesperson for Google said, "We've only just started. Lots of new features will be coming to Google Plus. One of them might even be the ability to search one day."
