Facebook has launched Graph Search, a search engine to mine the billions of friend connections, locations, likes, comments, and tags that make up its Social Graph backbone. Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement at a media event at Facebook’s Menlo Park headquarters.

Worlds Colliding - Facebook starts to search as Google continues to try and get more social… 
Things are getting ripe for a disruption. And this battle will be a big one!! 
Purely on Facebook’s graph search though - it is a potential fortune waiting to be unlocked in terms of monetization. Remember paid search is the majority of all digital marketing spends!!

Good find by Cnet’s Stephen Shankland:

It looks like Chrome users, not just Android users, will get access to Google Now, the search giant’s technology for bringing weather reports, trip departure reminders, birthday alerts, nearby restaurant reviews, and more to the attention of Android users.

Google Now is one of the few recent Google software projects I’m legitimately excited about. It’s very well done and seemingly getting better by the day.

A sneak peak at ‘google now’ was very exciting, I am looking forward to more from google’s core product teams!!
