Reading the difference between Google & Facebook

Of course they are different. Here's a bit about the nature of the difference.

Google's enables search. A machine-driven algorithm-determined search.

Facebook has those elements I suppose. More importantly, Facebook is a default for a tribe-driven conversation on anything and everything. Your tribe helps you search, right? And a tribe-recommendation will likely turn out to be more relevant and credible.

My experiences on the both the planets have been mixed. Searching on both have yielded some good results and some not-so-good results. My sense is Facebook will yield better (by 'better' I mean, for important and urgent matters, the success in accomplishing the desired objectives of the search quickly and credibly) results before too long.

Human beings still do a better job connecting one another, or one thing with another, than algorithms.
