You know what’s more important than President Obama speaking at Facebook headquarters yesterday? The fact that you can now discuss President Obama speaking at Facebook straight from your search results!
Today on blekko we’ve launched a great new feature that integrates Facebook comments into search. Now you not only get our trusted web search results, but also the breaking news, opinions, insight and updates of your friends. Search results and social results literally living side by side. Pretty cool, eh?
Check this out. The other day we felt an earthquake at our office, so I searched for ‘california earthquake‘. Low and behold, three of my friends had posted about this in their news feed. I know this because now those posts show up directly in my search results! And with the comment widget, I can talk to them directly about their posts, my search or anything else.
I can click on ‘view all /facebook results’ or just use the ‘/facebook’ slashtag to get results of all your friends’ Facebook comments.
For the first time your friends have an active presence in your search results. Search for ‘sushi‘ – straight from the search results page you can discuss with your friends – anybody been to any of these places? which of these are the best? any good ones missing?
Depending if I’m feeling social or not, this feature can be turned off or on in the blekko preferences. So, login to blekko and connect with Facebook and give /facebook a try!
