Facebook Offers It’s Own Search Engine to Find Links to Share

Sharing links on Facebook for mobile users was always rather annoying. You had to either copy paste the link from your browser; or utilize the Copy Link function when you’re browsing something within the Facebook browser window. Then you write a new post; paste the link in, and finally share it. Facebook is looking to change all of that as they begin the rollout of an “Add a Link” button on iOS devices. The Add a Link buttonĀ pulls up a search box where users can search through links that are already popular on Facebook & select the one they wish to share.

This can open up some great advertising doors allowing businesses to increase shares to their articles and/or websites by advertising them within these search results. In-fact this advertising revenue might end up coming directly from Google’s pockets as Adwords users go towards Facebook advertising. What are you’re thoughts?
