Facebook delves deeper into search
Eric Barker stashed this in Facebook
Great picture, especially the LIKE link. :)
Eric needs to use the PandaWhale bookmarklet to auto-import images.
This is my favorite paragraph in the article:
If the engineer is looking to make the search box on Facebook more useful, he will face plenty of obstacles. Users see and rate only a fraction of the Web’s content -- mostly material that is new -- so Facebook may have a difficult time including more obscure content in search results.
I love that Facebook has only put two dozen engineers on the "problem of search".
From my recollection, that's also roughly the size of their "typeahead" team.
