Default GOOGLE Vs FACEBOOK

By now it has become well known that Google is planning a competitor to Facebook. While many believe that it may be too little too late for Google, the reality is that it’s a matter of survival for the company at this point.

-->Google’s automated algorithms have become inefficient in that their systems are somewhat easy to game.

searching has become a rapid process of trial an error.

Enter the Like button, the social solution to search, and the replacement of the link as a voting mechanism. The people as a whole are more effective at determining what content is relevant and most of those people are unfortunately not effective at creating links. Case in point: there were 126 million blogs as of 2009 (easy to create sites where creating links is easy) and there are now over 500 million Facebook users actively clicking on like buttons around the web.


The Facebook like button has completely reduced the friction for the common users to vote for content whiich has resulted in like replacing the link. It won’t be immediate but it also won’t take too long.

Google knows this and now they’re threatened big time.

While I’m not quite sure what Google’s replacement for the like button will be, it’s pretty clear that it has to be something. The link will die slowly as the most important currency on the web.


If there’s some way that Google manages to launch their own like button and is able to use this new voting mechanism to impact search results, there’s no doubt that publishers will implement it. In the meantime however, Facebook is the reigning king of social and more importantly the “Like”. Personally, I think it’s important that Google should have a competitor moving forward and I’m personally rooting for Facebook, which despite 500 million users, is still technically the underdog.

Facebook is using Bing as th default search engine for its more than 500 million users worldwide, which puts the site in a position to enhance its advertising model even more.
By offering search on the site, Facebook is now able to gather data that it can leverage immeasurably in the world of advertising: the way people think, what they care about and how this leads them to buying decisions.

Google has now put some restrictions on its export of contact ... not particularly mentioning Facebook.

Google said that anybody who wanted to automatically import Gmail contacts data had to allow the user to export that data just as easily.

Google have also added the digital equivalent of a cigarette-pack warning to the Gmail export contacts page, asking Gmail users "are you super sure you want to import your contact information for your friends into a service that won't let you get it out?"


Interesting ... isn't it


In response, Facebook changed the way Facebook users could import Gmail contacts data by writing a script that allowed those users to automagically download their Gmail contacts as a CSV (comma-separated value) file, and then upload that file into Facebook with the press of another button.

There's another interesting thing. Facebook is eating away the search market share of Google. People now prefer to search people on Facebook. Nevertheless, Facebook is far far behind Google when it comes to innovations and variety of products.

Hi,

I think Google Adwords is still better than Facebook Ads.

I think both are equally good in the space they are operating. Google is a search engine giant, while Facebook is for social networking.
