BREAKING: Facebook Beats Google Social Circle, Now Shows Search Results Ranked By Users Like

3 Sep, 2010

The future of search is here and it is based on social graph.

Facebook has officially entered into Google territory, it is now showing search results from around the web ranked by likes from users’ facebook friends.

This means that facebook social search based on users like is up and running at least with me and other users, this is a major threat to Google’s main business which is search.

Google on the other hand have smilier services called search” Results from people in your social circle for facebook ” in beta, which is based on your google accounts connections that shows search results from people in your social circle but not ranked into how much they were searched, but facebook like is almost embedded everywhere in the web, now facebook is leveraging its users base to act as robots to get web data and as a source of links ranking by liking links. Meaning that the dream of human powered search engine is now real with Facebook. Again, this is a major threat to Google and explains why Google waked up recently to enter the social networking market very seriously.

    The future of social search: Yes: but the future of search: not quite.

    The likes system only works with likes from your own social network. The database will always remain way too limited compared to the search index of search engines.

    Plus they can’t create a world wide like database since then all spammers would ruin the complete search index.
