      @vydyulashashi-Google is ruling the search market as far as search market share is concerned.But as a site Facebook is in the top most position without any sign of losing their popularity.I think Facebook might think of entering the search market, not a bad idea.Thank you so much.

      @Lady_E-I agree with you.Keeping with the current trend in Internet is even more useful to we all hubbers than normal Internet users.Thanks a lot :)
