Facebook’s Next Money Maker? Its Version of AdWords in its New App Center Search
Facebook added a search box to its App Center yesterday, but what it might do next is more interesting. The social network could soon let developers pay to buy search keyword ads in the App Center search typeahead, similar to the specific name ads in its sitewide search typeahead. And if App Center goes beyond the typeahead and launches a search results page, it could host full-blown AdWords-style search ads.
