Facebook tests showing Wikipedia information in search results - Neowin

in hive-116221 •  last year 


Now, a new report indicates Facebook has piloted a new feature that displays information from Wikipedia when you look for something through its search bar (via TechCrunch). The factual information will appear on a side panel to the right of the search results so that users won't have to switch to a new tab in order to view that information. In addition to article snippets from Wikipedia, the service also shows relevant information from its existing features. For example, when you search for "COVID-19," Facebook Search will surface data from its COVID-19 Information Center at the top of the results instead of an information box to the right-side panel.
