We all know how much time people spend on Facebook, so it’s only natural for search to be implemented properly, Facebook has search at the moment, but it’s pretty poor.
Facebook has head hunted Lars Rasmussen, who was a former google engineer. His job is to work on upgrading Facebooks search function. According to a report in Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Rasmussen is working with a team of 25 engineers.
Google should be worried as pretty soon, people will simply stay on the Facebook platform. Now Google are smart, they rolled out Wave, buzz and now +1, frantically trying to capture the social side aswell as the search side.
As of today, Facebook has the lead on social and Google has the lead on search. Greed will be the problem here, I believe Google should concentrate on Search and Facebook on Social media, but as the great Socrates said ~
“He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.”
