Last week, Google announced via Twitter that it would be integrating Facebook pages content into its real time search results. The company had previously announced the similar addition of Twitter updates to the search. This change marks a milestone in how social media has evolved from a fun way to keep in touch with old friends to a powerful business tool.
Google Real Time Search lets the search engine’s users decide how much and where to get search results from. The default for Google’s search is still websites, but now users can open or close the funnel of options from a list of sources on the search results pages’ left side."
