    In the near future? Both. Facebook will see it's search expand as people spend more and more time there but Google as the default engine will continue to see significant activity for those doing research making it highly profitable.

    It's likely that facebook will expand search and google will find a few social tools that hit but I don't see a short term scenario where one significantly intrudes into the other.

    Of course that's the short term; history has shown us that sites rise and fall, but there's not much experience to look at so that's not a guarentee of the future.

    The answer to this problem can be derived only after Google has launched its GoogleMe in the market. Google is also likely to launch Chrome OS by mid 2011 which will be competing directly with Microsoft. We can only wait and watch and nothing else can be done.

    I don't think it will much affect the popularity of both. As google is a search engine where we go to search for the answers of our queries and facebook is where we interact with our friends and loved once. Both of them are not competitors nor rivals, just a different platform for different requirements.

    Each service has its advantages. Facebook is already in the place and brand through which so many of us do social networking. Google and Facebook have both been plagued with privacy issues lately. Both these service have abundant User base. And for me as long as these two website stay with no mess in terms of Privacy and Ads, they will stay in the same Top positions.

    Yahoo was once bigger than Google. Altavista was bigger too. Being #1 does not mean you are #1 forever... especially on the web.

    Case in point, Facebook is now bigger than google in many metrics including percent of marketshare.

    I don't really think either of the two will lost. This is to say that I agree with mitashseo...the future is still obscure but I am pretty sure both companies will stay still on top of the list and "who kills who" wouldn't be a big issue by then..

    when you are on the web, you can't be sure if you are no. 1 forever, Life on the web is changing with every clicks, search and view. There are millions of great web developers competing each other to reach the no. 1 ranking.

    The internet is ever changing. Google and Facebook will continue to battle it out, but it will probably be something entirely different that rules search 10 years from now.

    With what facebook has achieved today, I think if they launch the SE it will be a good competitor to Google making it more favorable to internet marketers. Google will surely adjust to be more competitive to stay on top and it will benefit all of us.

    Yeah daxmonster, you're right! IN my personal opinion, if FB also starts activities like Google, it'll surely gain lot more success than Google due to its immediate popularity and lots of users from around the world.

    In my opinion there will be someone new who will be leading the industry in 5 to 7 years and its most likely to be a hybrid of Search and Social media. I would keep and eye on bing.

    Thumbs up

    Well difficult to answer but we can see how face book is popular amongst the youth but we can’t underestimate Google as it is a big brand in the world of networking. So I think time will change again and Google will bring a new revolution in social networking world as “ORKUT”.

    I think Google will overcome Face Book. Because, Goggle has managing lot of products like Buzz, Sites, Blog Spot, Maps, Video, Adsense, Adwords etc. Face Book is only the Social Networking. So, my vote goes to Google.

    IMO google is a great search engine but when its comes to social networking no one can beat facebook in it's own game.

    I vote for facebook.

    Oh I think Orkut is owned by google. !

    Facebook and Google for me really rocks! I used both for traffic and sales but I don't understand why people freak on making the two at war.

    Facebook is already ahead of Google in any social networking site.
    Remember Google buzz? What happened to that? Facebook is still booming, but Google's search engine is very powerful - and google wants what they want... I heard Myspace is for sale - so maybe Google might buy them and change it up?

    It's nice that there is healthy competition in the social networking scene, Google gives the impression it wants to control the web, right now its diversity goes into larger areas than Facebook, but Facebook has the heart of the social networks scene, so in terms of a social network search engine, Facebook should win, as Google is preoccupied

    In my opinion facebook helps us to connect with our friends and loved ones and Google helps us in a search engine tool which helps us to do globalized search. So how can they called as a rivals that quiet perplexing thing for me

    Agreed. Facebook is constantly changing anyway to keep people's attention - they'll probably do something bigger and maybe even better to steal focus from Google away.
