Social networks overcome Google as search engine
Google is the most used search engine in the world. Everyday, million of people trust its results and in the last years, Google has succeeded in experiencing the mobile revolution earning the loyalty of its users. However, it seems it wasn’t enough: recently Facebook overcame Google by four percentage points, for an entire week.
According to a study of Data Science Center, today the social networks – especially Twitter and Facebook – are the main tools in order to find all the necessary information. Why? Some websites, such as Reddit and the same social networks are able to address the traffic website and they can actually spread the so called fake news. Moreover, the traffic website does not frequently come from Google, but from the social networks and the newsletters.
So, what’s going to happen in the future? Google is looking for new challenges, such as the web-wide algorithmic search, artificial intelligence and robotics.
