Bloggers, Facebookers, Tweeters Rejoice - the Future Is User-generated Content

Bloggers, Facebookers, Tweeters rejoice, the future of the internet is user generated content – that too real time user generated - according to this article quoting Google CEO Eric Schmidt. Excerpt:

“It's because of this fundamental shift towards user-generated information that people will listen more to other people than to traditional sources. Learning how to rank that "is the great challenge of the age." Schmidt believes Google can solve that problem.”

This blogger saw this coming, honest. Michael Jackson’s and Ranjan Das’ death came to him through Facebook, every few hour he checks for updates and somehow it all gels, what people and Tweet and what people Facebook (had to invent that term, you know).

How will Google rank them is the question. Already this blogger’s facebook page appears on a search of “John + Matthew” on Google. Trust Google to spring a surprise this time. (Hat Tips: Madhavan Narayanan)
