How To Replace Google? Or Why Techmeme & Facebook Will Kick Google’s Butt

First Robert Scoble’s video explanations for his claim as to why mahalo, techmeme, and facebook will kick google’s butt in four years and  follow up with a rebuttal by Muhammad Saleem’s Blog [Social Media Strategy for New Media Entrepreneurs] >>> “mahalo, techmeme, and facebook will kick google’s butt in four years may provide us an interesting look at where the future of search may lie, it certainly isn’t correct in its central hypothesis. in fact, the argument he makes is not far from the older argument that wikipedia will kill google (google share of search has increased over 130 percent since that claim)…

    Hi

    The conclusion Robert makes from his arguments might be different from the point of view of most of the people. He has got some interessting points everybody has to agree I think.

    Apart from the content of his message(s) I’d like to focus on how he distributes his opinion and how he mixed the ideas of other people with his owns.
    By using his Channel on http://www.kyte.tv and Facebook, where kyte also has an embedded application, he reached dozens of blogs and tousands of people within hours! He was able to respond to other peoples opioions by using the embedded chat on kyte. Everybody in the interessted communities was talking about his show.

    Greetings. Claudio

  2. Thanks for the comment Claudio. His topic which is essentially how Google will die, had a built in buzz generator and I think it is truer for Facebook than Google. I also think he underestimates Google’s ability to change and the mass loyalty it enjoys. Having said that they do buy companies and then screw-up their creativity.. blogger comes to mind..
