The state of Texas is offering Facebook Inc. $1.4 million from a business development fund to locate a new 200-employee sales and operations office in Austin. This comes on the heels of a recent announcement by Facebook, which has seen membership grow to more than 400 million worldwide, that a new data center will be opened in Oregon, employing 35 workers.The deal, announced Thursday by Gov. Rick Perry's office, asks the city of Austin to chip in $200,000 in development incentives to lure the Social Media giant.  Good idea?
