Facebook has 20 engineers that are being led by former Google engineer Lars Rasmussen to improve the search engine within their site. There is some speculation that Facebook may build a search engine of their own, but I doubt it. They are already dominating at social networking… why shift focus? That’s like Yahoo! launching a Facebook competitor with a News Feed — we know how that would end up.
