Live Search and "Search Facebook" [blogs.msdn.com]or "Search The Web"
Now Facebook users in the U.S. have the option to "Search Facebook" or "Search the Web." In addition, adCenter is delivering search ads alongside those results. For me that means getting great search results while receiving highly relevant ads that are personalized by either my Facebook profile or search query.This is a great first step in our partnership. As we evaluate user feedback and results we'll explore additional ways to integrate Live Search more deeply into the Facebook experience

Facebook - Live Search [blog.facebook.com]

We're always working on innovative ways to make your experience on Facebook more useful. Toward that goal, today we've added Microsoft Live Search to your Facebook search experience (for people in the US). This is the first step in giving you the ability to find content from across the web while using Facebook.

This, however, is an attempt to make some money by selling space on our web site. But, we're going to call it a service to our users because, well, you know, the ad guy told them we would. So, there, we did, and that's that.

Microsoft is determined to dominate in search. I'm sure live search will start to appear all over the web.

Personally never touch Facebook, I have better uses for my time (not limited to surfing WW). I kindly donated a rather useful hosts file to the GF though so she doesn't see those annoying micro$oft ads.

what a brilliant idea! I was really getting so tired of having to open a second tab from Facebook and google my query - geez what a time waster that was

Except that you're not Googling anything here.

no but as a user of facebook and search, that is what I'd usually do. I am in South Africa, but even if I get Live search available from my Facebook platform, I'd probably still use Google, just that I can expect a certain quality of relevance of search results, which I don't think Live have achieved yet.
