    Facebook search has still a long way to go in my mind. The data that Facebook presents when one does a search is still very basic if at all none existant.. Time will tell…

    Well I agree with Neil. Facebook Graph search is nowhere near as good as Google… and it has one big problem… it’s limited by Facebook users. Using Graph we can search only through data provided by users. And while the entire world wide web has billions of pages, facebook users can provide very limited info…

    Personally I think that Facebook should keep focus on social while Google on search. Google + wasn’t and never be able to compete with Facebook in social, and Graph search will never be able compete with G search…

    If Facebook will continue fighting about search market (they can’t win anyway) they will lose power in Social…

    There are companies who tried to win similar “wars” (Cola and Pepsi for example) unfortunately results were very bad for them.

    “Marketing Warfare” is a great book that shows mistakes big brands are doing. In my opinion Facebook is making mistake… But time will show.

    P.S However, Graph Search is a powerful marketing tool so some people will love it.
