There is a rumor circulating that Facebook will be entering into the search market in 2012 to compete head on with Google.
Just think about it, the benefit would be great for Facebook users as they would not even have to leave their Facebook ecosystem to make a search and would vastly improve the experience of their users.
The relationship between Facebook and Bing is already quite strong and putting Facebook together with Bing (effectively Microsoft, as they own Bing) could create a a social search environment that would threaten Google’s $25 billion in annual search revenues that it collected in 2010.
A Battle Worth Watching
Now that is a battle that will be as compelling to watch as the Google+ and Facebook arm wrestle that is already accelerating the development and evolution of social as features and functions on both platforms are announced almost weekly.
So despite these rumors Facebook is still growing and evolving powered by its nearly 800 million users.
