SAN FRANCISCO – Facebook is focused on creating a new search engine to help people better navigate everything on the social network, according to a report.
The social network has deployed two dozen Facebook engineers onto the ambitious project, led by former Google engineer Lars Rasmussen, to radically improve the search engine currently available on the social network, reports Bloomberg Businessweek.
According to the magazine’s unnamed sources at the social network, the goal of the project is “to help users better sift through the volume of content that members create on the site, such as status updates, and the articles, videos, and other information across the Web that people “like” using Facebook’s omnipresent thumbs-up button”.
West Coast editor Drew Olanof said: “For example: [if] I wanted a taco, I wouldn’t necessarily type taco into an open search box like I would on Google. I’d choose a location or a group of friends and then search for “taco”. Based on where they’ve checked in on Foursquare or Facebook, or things that they’ve ‘liked’, I could be given results to check out.”
By doing so, Facebook is going after Google’s territory, just as the search giant is moving in the opposite direction and going after social, through its launch of Google+.
