    To share in the spoils - meaning?

    Hello

    What is the meaning of the expression in bold?

    The Silicon Valley blogger Michael Arrington, who runs the influential TechCrunch blog, recently caused a ruckus by suggesting that Facebook has been turning a blind eye to the scams because it is sharing in the spoils.

    Re: To share in the spoils - meaning?

    How to paraphrase this expression?

    And what can be the synonym of the word 'blog' and 'blogger'?

    They're the only words in use that I know and I think it would be artificial to use a paraphrase or something. you don't have to change every word.
