Facebook is secretly working on huge improvements to its as yet untapped search engine, with the project being spearheaded by a former Google engineer.


Bloomberg cited anonymous sources at the company, who revealed that Facebook is hoping to make it significantly easier to search through status updates and shared content, as well as anything that has been “liked” using Facebook's buttons across the web.

That's a whole new invasion of privacy, this stuff matters hehe. Other than the less important things on your social wall (depending on who you are.) What you search is bound to be a bit uhh... weird.

[quote name="assaulth3ro911" url="/t/1236608/vr-zone-facebook-working-on-social-search-engine-to-rival-google#post_16849516"] That's a whole new invasion of privacy, this stuff matters hehe. Other than the less important things on your social wall (depending on who you are.) What you search is bound to be a bit uhh... weird.[/quote] No doubt that your privacy settings will be maintained. So anything you don't make as "public" will still be not public. Regardless, I didn't realize there was much of a need to search status updates and such. Am I in the minority? Sounds like creating a solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

 

EDIT--why in the world is the quote function not working?  It's formatted perfectly.  :confused:

Facebook ruined the simplicity, and therefore attraction of their site. I don't see them doing a very good job with a search engine.

Google has stayed true to its roots, and kept its search engine simple for the user. That's why its so popular.

Face book was fun for a week then it hit me; nobody cares what I am doing and I don't care what they are doing... I have better things to spend my time on like inserting rusty razor blades under my fingernails.
Google is the best SE for a reason, Bing is a monstrosity of affiliate links and facebook will probably not be much different.

Yup, what's more simpler than a white page with a box that you type in?

I'm not going to use it. I love Google because it's integrated into everything, and all of Google's webpages are lightweight and fast to load. Google loads up in half the time Facebook does on all of my devices. And we really don't need another search engine, since I doubt Facebook is going to bring anything innovative to the table.

But that's just my opinion, and it should be taken as such.
