Pensieri sparsi di un ramingo digitale

Facebook, cosa vuoi fare da grande?

Interessante post di John Battelle, secondo il quale Facebook sarebbe il vero anti-Google, non Twitter. Fra i vari motivi, uno in particolare: il fatto che Facebook, a differenza di Twitter, non lascia spiderizzare i propri contenuti.

In fact, I'd argue that the right thing to do is to make just about everything possible available to Google to crawl, then sit back and watch while Google struggles with whether or not to "organize it and make it universally available." A regular damned if you do, damned if you don't scenario, that....For an example of what I mean, look no further than Twitter. That service makes every single tweet available as a crawlable resource. And Google certainly is crawling Twitter pages, but the key thing to watch is whether the service is surfacing "superfresh" results when the query merits it. So far, the answer is a definitive NO.Why?Well, perhaps I'm being cynical, but I think it's because Google doesn't want to push massive value and traffic to Twitter without a business deal in place where it gets to monetize those real time results.Is that "organizing the world's information and making it universally available?" Well, no. At least, not yet.

Ogni mese gli utenti di Facebook postano 4 miliardi di informazioni (news, aggiornamenti di stato, compleanni, ecc.), caricano 850 milioni di foto e 8 milioni di video. Praticamente una seconda Internet. Impedendo a Google di indicizzare questi contenuti, di fatto Facebook si pone come possibile anti-Google. A differenza di Twitter, col quale (secondo Battelle) Google finirà col trovare un accordo.Staremo a vedere...
