It appears that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has finally found a way to make profits from the his social networking site following the recent decreases in its share price.

The site, which now has over 1 billion active users, will immediately commence merging activities with the auction website eBay.

In explaining the idea, a spokesman for Facebook described how "users will actually be able to add auction listings for their friends - and then sell them. The new owner not only having access to their purchase's confidential security details, but potentially actually enslaving them - we are working with our legal team on that one".

A spokesman for eBay added "We at eBay are delighted with this opportunity to join forces with Facebook. We have tried to integrate our normal auctions of second hand, and damaged items with human trafficking in the past and for some reason never been able to do it. This news is a 'game changer'".
