Google Vs Facebook - The Final Face-Off

Google Vs Facebook - The Final Face-Off
Facebook has started challenging Google's current supremacy on the Internet, with the help of a radical new approach. This particular approach targets the way people live, play, work and search online.

While Google's search engine results are based on a series of selected algorithms, Facebook boasts of a higher level of personalization that is based on one's own likes and dislikes.

The founder of Facebook, Mr. Mark Zuckerberg, said that, "I think what we've found is that when you can use products with your friends and your family and the people you care about, they tend to be more engaging," he further went on to say that, "It includes not only what you do and what you like but people you know and what they like and the companies you interact with."

Mark Zuckerberg, who founded Facebook in his Harvard University dorm room six years ago and is now worth an estimated $US6.9 billion, refers to it as the "social graph."

Furthermore, Facebook has also started competing with Google on the hiring front. For instance, it has forced the Mountain View, California-based Google to raise their salaries by 10 per cent, across the board.

However, many online experts still say that, "Google is not going away." All we can do, is wait and watch.
