    Google failed in social, Facebook will fail in search.

    Doesn't work for me... Maybe for now it's only for people in Tier 1 countries?

    In fact I wouldn't underestimate Facebook.

    Although the "open WWW" is still much larger than FB, the amount of users in FB is simply overwhelming. Any market in FB is a million dollar market, perhaps some into the billions.

    What we'll have is probably a deeper division of the WWW.

    We're going back to the days when you had several network accesses, AOL, real internet, etc. Now we have the world of Google, the world of Facebook/Instagram and the parallel reality in WhatsApp and other closed apps.

    Essentially the Internet is getting sliced by several different companies. Interesting times for those with vision.

    Well said Bart, and I certainly agree.

    What scares me about this, and why I hope it'll turn out as a failure is due to the fact that Facebook, unlike Google, searches their own property which means they will have much more pristine control. This could turn out to make the life of an SEO much more difficult.


    Obviously I should be more optimistic and see opportunities rather than threats but as of current I'm fine with the way things are.

    Facebook as any other big company must evoluate into something greater than just a social website that is only sucking money from us. Otherwise it will die completely. That's why they are always implementing "new-old" features. With Facebook's budgets, servers and auditory this search engine can transform in something greater than Google.

    The only constant is change, who knows maybe Facebook will be the ones to topple Google eventually?

    So it's a search engine, but it's strictly for Facebook, and not the WWW?

    What I mean is, if I use it, are the results strictly from FB or from all over the internet?

    It's inside facebook and only for facebook public posts, images etc.
    Just try your facebook search bar.

    This only competes with Google in terms of people searching for News and most specifically BREAKING NEWS. I don't see how they can bridge this over to ecommerce "buy" or "best" type consumer searches. But if Facebook can figure this out they could make a stab at Google. Right now however they will have their hands full getting people to even use Facebook to search news topics.

    Part of the problem is that "Search Bar" has almost ALWAYS been on Facebook... and in the same place. It looks much like it ALWAYS did but now suddenly it does something new. How the hell are people supposed to know this unless Facebook overhauls the LOOK and promotes it better.

    Hey Facebook... redesign that shit. Don't be stupid.
