Lars Rasmussen works on search service for Facebook

Representatives of the social network Facebook announced about their intention to create a reliable and practical search service for the search of the necessary information among the large amount of the user content. Until now, many Facebook users complained about the lack of the normal means for the search of the necessary information among the tools of this social network. Still, the administration decided to create the search, and Lars Rasmussen, previously working in Google on Google Wave, is involved in development of this service.

In general, Lars Rasmussen is not an ordinary developer; together with his brother, he was а chief manager of the Google Wave project. Obviously, some common features of this service, now defunct, will be transferred on Facebook search service. It should be noted that Rasmussen began to work in Facebook in 2010. Here he works as the leader of the team consisting of dozens of developers. The whole process is controlled by Mark Zuckerberg.

According to the developers, this search service will allow the user to find a necessary content in the social network without any effort. The search will be conducted over the video and texts, including statuses and articles. The team of the developers believes that its project will not be a direct competitor to the Google search, because this search will work inside the Facebook, and not in the outer network. Experts say that the new tool will involve additional users, and the already registered ones will spend more time in the social network.

Additionally, the mechanism of monetization will be created. This will allow displaying the advertising relevant to the search inquiry of the user. Similar mechanism is also used by the other Internet companies, including Google.
