We need your Facebook data! Don't worry, we'll only use it anonymously to build the Idea Graph. And Ian will be releasing the first dataset at #MozCon  -- for free.

Facebook search? I'll believe it when I see it...
 
The bubble is back!

Or is it?

#Facebook shares shot up 7.7% the second Zuckerburg talk about a possible Facebook search engine. Even though we'd all love to see more competition for Google, Facebook still lacks the proof and expertise to create a quality search engine.

Thanks, +David Bruce Jr  Glad you found me via Buzzstream. The image article was actually written by one of my Portent colleagues, +R.J. LaCount. I'm not too knowledgeable when it comes to design, but here's another Portent post on optimizing product images by +Jarrod Medrano: http://www.portent.com/blog/design-dev/photoshop-product-images.htm

Hope that helps!
