Zuckerberg says social search is on Facebook's radar
Mark Zuckerberg hinted this week that Facebook is mulling a move into the search engine business, saying the site already handles a billion searches a day "and we're basically not even trying." An updated search function might use Facebook users' social signals to deliver more on-point search results, and to help brands target search users more effectively. "[I]f anyone has the resources to reinvent search for the social age, it is pretty clearly Facebook -- and that could be Google's worst nightmare," Mathew Ingram writes.

Samsung crowds out Apple with paid Twitter campaign
Samsung is paying to have its tweets put next to Twitter searches relating to the new iPhone, in a bid to muscle in on the buzz surrounding the Apple device's launch. The Promoted Tweets campaign is a sign that marketers are now happy to enter bidding wars to get attention on Twitter, particularly surrounding important events, Christopher Heine writes.

Middle East tensions put Embassy tweets in the spotlight
Tweets by staffers at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo amid tensions and violent protests could lead the U.S. to reconsider its efforts at online diplomacy, experts say. The tweets, which condemned an inflammatory video and called for religious tolerance, have drawn criticism from some quarters and prompted State Department officials to note that the messages were not pre-vetted. "Because there are all these tools out there, there's an instinct to try use them to say something. ... It would have been better for everyone to just calm down and figure out what was going on," says Shawn Powers of Georgia State University.

Facebook is powerful voter-turnout tool, researchers say
A Facebook voter-turnout campaign generated about 340,000 additional votes nationwide in the November 2010 elections, researchers say. The turnout campaign, which showed users photos of friends who had already voted, found that users were particularly likely to vote if they saw photos of voters to whom they had especially strong social ties. "What we have shown here is that the online world and the real world affect one another," said James Fowler of the University of California, San Diego.
