Facebook wants to be like Google

acebook is reportedly overhauling its search functionality to compete with Google, a move that could intensify rivalry between the two web giants even further. Reports tell us that about 24 Facebook developers. Led by ex-Google engineer Lars Rasmussen, are working on new search engine module. The engine is likely to allow users to more easily browse Facebook status updates, notes, images and videos. Facebook aims to keep its users from jumping off its social network to use Google's search engine for browsing other information.
         At this point, you're probably wondering that if Facebook is trying to focus primarily on giving users more access to content already available on its site, how it is competition to the God of Search Engines. Here's how: its being speculated that the social network plans to sell keyword ads, very much like Google and Bing do. It's going to be a rough ride for Facebook tough, seeing how it has to ensure optimum privacy settings of users, as it can only integrate those results that a user has set for public viewing.
