Well, I’m certain that you’ve heard the news now that FriendFeed has been purchased by Facebook. This is working to put Facebook on the mapping for real-time search queries just like on Twitter. It sure does look like that Facebook is going after Twitter, hard-core.
The fresh real-time search will be a leap progressive for Facebook. They don’t have to search through extended complicated updates to see what is going on, but now it’ll be in clear concise organize tabs to help you bound between friends list and FriendFeeds.
This is very important because for a long time Facebook is fallen are weak Twitter in momentum. Twitter has become the only place that a lot of people go to to find up to the second news on their popular subjects. This is the way that the Cyberspace is going. Away from Google spiders that take 30 minutes to five hours to find pages, and more towards user driven search engines. I then discovered myself searching Twitter instead of Google what I want to find out something.
Now you’ll be able to jump all over the Facebook search engine just like you would with Twitter is a list of updated news reports even from someones that are not on your friends list.
To see more and more from Facebook as they bring into this new functionality that they have and I’m sure you’ll see more and more promotion of this leap forward from Facebook.
What it all comes down to though, I’m still going to use twitter at this place to ping my community that I have written new posts. I guess… have to wait a little bit longer until Facebook and FriendFeed get things up and rolled.
There’s no question about it though, this is where the Internet is going towards real-time searches because people want things faster and faster. Just look at broadband Internet and its expansion of the past 4 years. Pretty soon we’ll be beaming information from one person to another instantly.
We will just have to see how Facebook and FriendFeed contend with twitter and what routes things head in the coming. One thing’s for sure, this business plan is worth billions to both companies. Who will gain? We will see.
