I'm used to, (& welcome) google bots and yahoo bots, but today I got a facebook visit from facebook?!? Does Mark Zuckerberg need an imagesetter? He can probably afford several billion, maybe he's setting up a moonlighting operation?
Why are facebook sending bots, are they setting up a search engine?

I think I heard that they were getting into the search business. Hmm, I'll have to Google that, LOL :)

Facebook's ads are not yet as good as Amazon's recommendation software. For example, they know I have a master's degree, but they show me ads all the time to get a master's degree in my undergraduate field. I also hope they're not showing me weight-loss ads based on my profile pic! (I never post about or search for information on that topic.)
I understand their ad generation can be separate from their search engine programming, but I'm a bit skeptical about what the quality of the results will be, at least initially.
