Facebook Dumps Bing, Will Introduce Its Own Search Tool

Desiree Williams Savory:

A very interesting blog post; Facebook Dumps Bing as its primary search provider. What search tool will they announce on Monday? #technologycoach

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

It seems that Facebook quietly removed Bing as its primary search provider over the weekend, announcing plans to debut its own search tool on Monday, according to Reuters.

The report says that Facebook’s new search tool will give users the ability to filter through old comments and other information from friends.

Facebook has been building out its search products for a long time, using Bing as an extra layer to provide results beyond the Interest Graph in an effort to avoid letting rival Google into the system.

A Facebook spokesperson told Reuters: “We’re not currently showing web search results in Facebook Search because we’re focused on helping people find what’s been shared with them on Facebook. We continue to have a great partnership with Microsoft of lots of different areas.”

Microsoft said almost the same thing to VentureBeat: “Facebook recently changed its search experience to focus on helping…

There are now half a billion streaming devices in households around the world

Desiree Williams Savory:

beautiful-15742_1920Have you noticed how much more control you have over what you can watch on TV and how much TV ‘free TV” has changed lately? I found Crackle – the free movie app that provides an alternative to Netflix and thought to myself, Wow, consumers are getting tired of the violence and hatred. It’s about time we get back to the basics and provide some simple things to watch before bed. Let’s not take it too far. Let’s talk to each other, have dinner together and discuss the day, and not text each other in the home :)

Streaming devices are wonderful, but also, they can be dangerous. Driving with your smartphone on the steering wheel? Not a good choice. Look around you on the freeway. You are taking other people’s lives in your own hands and the future of their family.

Stream less, talk and look at each other more.

The most popular brand is still Sony, with a total instal base of 123.8 million devices, a number that’s largely driven by the company’s PS3 and PS4 game consoles.

We’ll ask Chromecast VP Mario Queiroz whether that number looks right to him when…
