So what do you think the odds are of facebook entering the search business?

    They already have the eyeballs needed, they are the most visited site on the web now, I think it's inevitable, and besides, Google needs competition!

    Or perhaps they will challenge YouTube with their own video hosting service, monopolies are bad no matter how convenient they might be.

    It would probably look awesome but search terribly, Google is the top search site for a reason.

    But who knows, I think Apple is more likely to slowly distance itself from reliance on google, so it could happen, who knows.

    Very small. Google is in the search business because it puts them in the ad business. Facebook is already an adequate medium for sending out its own advertisements.

    Apple didn't just get in the ad business to make more money. They want to dictate user experience as much as possible. I don't see an end use of facebook getting in the search business other than to add another revenue source alone.
