Facebook is the most used People Search Engine on the web

Most people know Facebook as a social network, not a technology company. Well, data released by Facebook today shows that Facebook users are searching in large volume: 500 million Facebook searches were conducted in May alone. During the same time period, Google handled about 3.85 billion searches. I think it’s interesting that Facebook is processing a meaningful number of searches when compared to the total number of times Google is used nationwide (about 13% of Google’s volume, in fact) .
