23: new post   Blekko Adds Facebook Comments To Its Search Results
Considering that the Facebook News Feed has become an extremely popular source for link-sharing, updates, and social commentary, and Facebook Connect now practically blankets the Web, the social network is a logical partner for Blekko. And it gives it that much-envied social flair it had been lacking. [br][br]But, how does it work? Using Blekko's Facebook integration is easy: You simply connect with your Facebook account on the Blekko homepage, and go about your normal searching. The major difference, though, is that when you type 'TechCrunch' into the search bar, you'll still the same search results you would otherwise; yet, now, all mentions of TechCrunch in your Facebook news feed (and thereby mentioned in your friends' feeds) populate the right column. Look out!
