Google to Display Facebook Content in Search Results

Facebook will reportedly provide a boost for Google searches, allowing data from its mobile app to show up in a Google search.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that Facebook has begun allowing Google to crawl and index its mobile app.

For users, that means that Google search results on smartphones will display content from Facebook’s app, including public profile information.

Google cannot, however, show content shared through logged-in and private Facebook app sessions, which can be found using Facebook’s own search service.
