Facebook has a great AI and apparently also NLP team , a great framework , and tons of resources. They should make a search engine.

They're already modern version of web directory with millions of contributors so they probably just need to organise it. Or they already did it ? Did they ?

like the AOL of this generation

i dont think so. i dont think they have a functioning search

Facebook should probably wait for a few years until it does it. Currently it is the main traffic driver for “news” outlets and they will likely try to discredit the search engine.

Someone else will do it by then. Also, i dont think so - facebook has been better at giving traffic to other sites - unlike google they dont usually scrape and rehost them .

I totally support facebook leveraging their tech and data, all i am saying is that it will be discredited day one given the media hostility against it.
