Are you guys waiting for a Facebook Search Engine? Did you hear, finally, it’ll arrive and it will eventually do search. The Facebook CEO interview (Mark Zuckerberg), he said they will do it at some point, by it, means search. Zuckerberg said that Facebook is doing a billion searches per day, “and we’re not even trying.

Search engines are really developing to give you a set of answers, ‘I have a specific question, answer this question for me.
