Starting today, Facebook enhanced results will automatically appear in search results. This means users can add a friend, poke, send a message, and view a person’s friends from the deep links on the search results page. Facebook shared the structured data for this SearchMonkey app by adding semantic markup to their public profile pages.
Here’s an example of the Facebook enhanced result with Alex Moskalyuk, a key Facebook engineer on this project.
See the SearchMonkey app for Facebook in action yourself and try a search for your friends. Here at the Yahoo! Search Blog, we had fun checking out the Facebook profiles of marketing VP Raj Gossain and senior product marketing manager Graham Mudd.
We care about privacy as much as you do, so you’ll only see results for Facebook users who have enabled their profiles to be publicly searched and viewed. If you’re interested in “social-izing” your search results page further, check out other SearchMonkey apps for social networking sites such as StumbleUpon, Delicious, and MyBlogLog.
We hope the SearchMonkey app for Facebook and our other social apps make finding and connecting with friends on the Web easier than ever. Let us know what you think.
