Is Facebook Building a Search Engine to Rival Google?

According to a report from Businessweek, Facebook has dedicated a team of 20 engineers with an ex-Google programmer at the helm working on an internal search engine for Facebook. With Google making a push for Facebook’s prime market with Google+, it stands to reason that Facebook would retaliate with a search engine. The lines between companies are beginning to blur quite a bit.

If the Businessweek report is true, however, it will add yet another area of heightened competitive overlap between the two Silicon Valley giants.
