Just got word through my Twitter community that Piczo is set to announce an ad deal with Microsoft on Monday. 

However, this isn’t a Facebook-type deal, or one that will be considered a consolation prize as Google sneaks away with ad deals for MySpace and Friendster. This is smaller and UK-only.  Microsoft Digital
Advertising Solutions becomes Piczo’s exclusive UK ad sales partner
across all communication formats and market categories. Piczo is handing over its UK ad sales to Microsoft.

Piczo claims 25 million users globally, 2 billion pageviews
monthly and a reach that extends to two-thirds of UK teens according
to ComScore. Look out for a Microsoft announcement on Monday.
