Report in Forbes [forbes.com].
The citation currency in the Facebook Search Ecosystem is Likes, not links.
...people have been saying that there must be more to search than key words and page links... For the first time, a person’s relationship to a piece of information is going to help determine how relevant that information is... The new product lets Facebook users search in real time for information based on its association with other people.
Acquiring "Likes" is, at this moment, going to be the landrush for gaining higher rankings in Facebook Social Search.
Brace yourself for a future of “like” bribery, “like” gaming and “like” spam. If you are an influential person, expect the perks to start rolling in. Because, as we all know, some “likes” are worth more than others.
