Excellent point, Harris. It has always been thus with news. Context is the key. Many of the visitors to google and google news are looking for something. As a marketing tool, it's going to be difficult to say Facebook = search.
But, then, the web needed a channel to marketers to use to reach out to people who were not searching for you. "Hey, you!" marketing. That's the stuff that's really annoying. And, when it works, really profitable. But, it often does not work.
