Facebook is increasingly trying to be more like Twitter.
The new search bar mimics the search in Twitter by frequently updating what word or phrase you type in. From the above picture, if you search Obama, it will display notes or status updates.
Facebook has been in the news lately especially with announcement that they bought FriendFeed for an undisclosed sum. With Twitter becoming more popular, it makes sense for Facebook to up the ante and face off the competition.
The question now is, what is Twitter cooking up? With the popularity continually growing, what wonders how Twitter is going to do business and be big enough to take Facebook directly. Or will they be bought and surprise everybody. We’ll wait and see.
The new Facebook search should be rolling out Monday.
