Facebook vs. Google
Over the past two years Facebook has grown a substantial amount over the Internet and threatens other Internet corporations such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Before Facebook became popular, individuals used to find out information on their browser using search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing. However recently people have been using Facebook to find out all their information. This competitiveness over the Internet has recently hurt the search engine companies particularly Google, because Google is used to dominating and controlling the Internet market. Since Facebook is becoming more and more popular, Google’s success over the Internet is being endangered economically. Google feels people are starting to find out new information on Facebook thus the demand for search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing are decreased. Facebook is also making more of a profit than Google because it hires less workers and not having to pay as many people, while still putting out the same quality of information and work. Since Facebook is earning more of a profit they are able to explore and invent new ideas that they could benefit from in the future. Google and the other search engines are not hurt quite yet, but in the near future Facebook will catch up because of their profit margins. As long as Facebook’s demand is increasing and Google and the other search engines are decreasing, Facebook is looking to become a very successful company.
