    Facebook is unleashing universal search across its entire social network

    Facebook is unleashing universal search across its entire social network | The Verge

    "Because we’ve indexed the entire world’s conversations, we tell you things that are trending, things that are breaking, what's happening right now," says Rousseau Kazi, a product manager on Facebook's search team. "The whole idea here is that if you can group these pieces of content in certain ways, it makes it pretty easy to get the full story."
    It has to be more useful than current object/post search function...right? Trending search features are interesting, I'll be curious to see how FB reacts when SxSW or ACL is going-on here in ATX.

    Thanks so much for sharing Bryan.

    FB has been making all kinds of local moves lately too, so now with search added to the mix it will be interesting to see what happens.
