Facebook's long-term business strategy should be to crush Google. That's the plan from an anonymous "internet marketing insider" who has published an e-book on Amazon.com.

One of the ways the company should plan to achieve this, according to this anonymous author, is to form a partnership with Microsoft and incorporate their search engine, Bing, into the social networking site, thereby decreasing Google's dominance.

The e-book predicts "Microsoft stops funding billions in losses for Bing and swaps Bing to Facebook for more Facebook stock."

The e-book's thesis may get some attention within the business community, former portfolio manager and capital markets editor, Gary Kaminsky said.

Facebook declined to comment on the e-book and its content.
