As you all know Facebook is giving very strong competition to Google these days in many fields. Even we heard Google is silently developing a new social media site which has been named as GoogleMe! The fight between Google and Facebook is tremendous to watch out for.

Google recently added a new feature called real time update which features recent Twitter tweets about what you searching. This was one of the feature which shown Google and Twitter combination to tackle Facebook.

Here we got shock again! Today when we were searching for a topic, Google search result displayed its search like below,

What was that? Google added Facebook to its real time search updates! It was a shocking news for us at least. Not only Facebook. Google even added MySpace, FriendFeed and many social media site to get latest updates.

But Google didn’t add full-fledged updates from Facebook, MySpace etc. When we went inside updates page we rarely got updates from these providers and updates was filled with Twitter tweets.

May be Google is updating many features to tackle its competitor Microsoft Bing which joined its hand with Facebook. Bing now shows many updates from Facebook in its search.

What you say about this move by Google? Is Google scared of updates from Bing? Share your thoughts 🙂

    I don't know whether it's good news of bad news becoz Embedding Tweets and Feeds may be give wrong results we can't rely on twitter for correct news. Let's see what happen But I still prefer Bing for the result quality.

    Its indeed a nice move from Google. Recently, I even read that Google working hard against content theft. So, in all, we can say that Google is doing its best to get support of all sections of web, may be it social networks, blogosphere or normal netizen.
    Good thinking Google!!!
