Google’s executive Chairman, Eric Schmidt revealed that Google’s offer to partner with the social networking giant, Facebook ,was rejected despite several tries.

Google’s search could be improved with access to Facebook’s data about Web surfers’ friends and acquaintances,but didn’t go into detail which deal he was referring to.

We tried very hard to partner with Facebook. They were unwilling to do the deal,he said.

As Microsoft Bing and Facebook had joined hands earlier, Google had expected that Facebook would effortlessly accept the deal, but in the end, Google failed to achieve the desired result.

Schmidt also noted that Google has renewed a partnership with Apple in which Google provides map technology featured in the iPhone.
