Facebook's New Add a Link Feature A Threat to Google?

Social networking giant, Facebook is looking to cut down the time the users are spending on Google. The new in-app search engine of Facebook will allow users to post links in a status update without having to visit Google. This feature is still in the testing process.

As per this new feature, whenever any user will type in a search term on FB, a drop down list of links will appear. The user will be able to preview what is on that website and then share the link easily. This will cut down the extra visit to Google in search for links and allow FB to keep the users on its app.

Facebook already has more than one trillion indexed user posts. The new  add a link functionality seems to provide a more advanced display of Facebook’s search feature by focusing on links to other content online.
