    Well I don't think it will have success because Google never had success in social networking because here FB is the giant, but the same applies for FB, they will never have success in the search engine industry.

    I don't think so but I read an article that Facebook is teaming up with Yahoo on the other forum discussion.

    I view facebook as already a quasi-search engine in and of itself. Perhaps the more toward being a wholesale and authoritative provider of indexed information - whether or not they call it a search engine - is somewhat inevitable. Although, again, the head space the average facebook user is operating within whilst on facebook is less an intelligence gathering one than a veg out one for my money. Interesting to see how facebook capitalize fully on their huge eye ball resource...

    Well, here's a refreshing post in this thread. An actual reference instead of mere speculation. Rep awarded. Sometimes I think people will just say anything to post.

    Really? It already competes with Google successfully. Not as a search engine, but both companies compete for the same advertising dollars.

    Use it sooner or later? What are you trying to say?

    Google gets more visitors, but Facebook's 500 million members spend more total time on the social media giant than Google users spend on the search giant or its "products."

    I believe this is a related topic and sheds some light on the issues: http://www.redorbit.com/news/technol...ok_and_google/

    I think in many respects Facebook is already performing many of the basal functions of a search engine - certainly amongst the stalker demographic Seriously, though, I'm calling them the Fourth Wave of search and am very eager to see where they are going to try to capitalize on their huge user base.

    A careful reading shows no mention there of an FB SE, but rather an agreement that

    would allow Microsoft’s search engine to return results based on the Facebook “likes” of a user’s friends
    Whether that means that MSN will be providing internal search services for FB, or that FB will be providing data for Bing's SERPs is unclear.
