While there was a lot of speculation about Facebook?s search strategy, the company has confirmed with us that ?all Open Graph-enabled web pages will show up in search when a user likes them?. Earlier this week we published about the new Facebook SEO that?s possible via the Open Graph, but now it?s clear that this is the beginning of Facebook?s internet search strategy. The race is now on for publishers to optimize their sites for Facebook?s search engine.
I thought it would be useful to post one more update regarding Facebook?s supposed ?War Declaration? against Google with their Open Graph search functionality.

To be fair, Facebook wasn?t the one declaring war, that was only our interpretation.

This Literature Review builds on the 2008 LitReview that Andrew Schrock and I crafted for the Internet Safety Technical Task Force. This document is not finalized, but we want to make our draft available broadly so that scholars working in this area can inform us of anything that we might be missing.
Representatives from the US, the EU, Japan, South Korea, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand will convene this Monday in Lucerne for the Ninth round of ACTA negotiations. President Obama has expressed his commitment to ?conclude these negotiations soon.?
Last week, a group of 90 academics, practitioners and public interest organizations gathered to analyze the most recent ACTA draft and have released this statement detailing the ways ACTA threatens public interests.
“The seventh-grade guidance counselor says she can spend up to three-fourths of her time mediating conflicts that began online or through text messages.
In April, the burden of resolving these disputes had become so onerous that the principal, Mr. Orsini, sent an exasperated e-mail message to parents that made national news: ‘There is absolutely NO reason for any middle school student to be part of a social networking site,’ he wrote. If children were attacked through sites or texting, he added, ‘IMMEDIATELY GO TO THE POLICE!'”
Ever since we launched Google.cn, our search engine for mainland Chinese users, we have done our best to increase access to information while abiding by Chinese law. This has not always been an easy balance to strike, especially since our January announcement that we were no longer willing to censor results on Google.cn.
