“Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, seeking to boost advertising sales from mobile devices, discussed potential partnerships with Samsung, according to the head of the South Korean company’s handset division. Douglas MacMillan reports on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg West.”

Here is just a small sample of what Douglas MacMillan of Bloomberg had to say about a potential partnership:

“Samsung, as you said, is the smartphone leader and Facebook desperately needs to increase its presence in mobile phones. So, it is sort of a match made in heaven. We heard yesterday from Samsung talking about how that company s investing more in content, so it makes sense from both sides I think.”

As you can see, MacMillan agrees that this would not be a one sided partnership. While Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) is going to benefit greatly, the same would hold true from Samsung’s point of view.

MacMillan added even more:

“Facebook doesn’t have its own mobile phone and it doesn’t have its own mobile operating system, so it is very important for this company to the best of its ability play phone makers against one another.”
