  1. Interesting, but especially twitter when Google could not do a deal with them a few years back. I think ideally everything should be consider as social hints are sometimes a good thing.

    I think Google should incorporate FB and Twitter, but I guess it is up to FB and Twitter to allow for crawling and I guess they want money from it, which is wrong as they can get more eye balls if they allow search engines like Google to index them properly.
