Kinda disappointing…
Google’s search algorithm has become outdated, from the results page that’s almost identical to the design offered by Altavista and Northern Lights back in the nineties, to results provided by this monopoly’s search engine that increasingly look irrelevant to the point of being comic.
This naturally calls for someone to introduce a better web search service, but FB’s search function seems like yet another ‘internal’ feature of their website, and not something for the ‘real world’ out there.

Facebook, the best way to have privacy invaded other than sending in the troops to steal some oil.

But on a serious note, if I want to find out about a restaurant I will still rather use google than try and see if a friend went there, If I want to go on holiday I will still rather google.
