    I'm in a bit of a confusion here.
    I believe the following are owned by Google :
    Orkut
    Facebook
    Youtube
    Am i right? Sorry for being a noob, a google search doesn't give out great details either.

    Google has no ownership in the privately held company Facebook. Facebook has the following major investors, Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-Shing, Microsoft, and several venture capital investors.

    facebook is privately owned as mentioned above, google does not own it, early startup investors probably have the biggest stake in the facebook.

    Facebook is not owned by Google.

    If a site asks you to login using your Google account, then most probably that site is owned by Google.

    Yes they do, actually. They own 98.4% of it, and Microsoft owns the remaining 1.6%.

    Microsoft paid $240 million just on a 1.6% stake? That's news to me.
    FB ads is not that popular. I wonder where they get their revenue from.

    Your confusion is correct all those are different from Google. All one they are different owner. In other word we can describe that they are competitor of each other.
