The death of search and the rise of choice engines « Big Data Made Simple

The death of search and the rise of choice engines « Big Data Made Simple | Company & Business Research | Scoop.it
Some 16 odd years ago, Google made search engines famous and ubiquitous. It’s sell-by date has come. Think about it, Search was the greatest thing in the world because it achieved Google’s wonderful vision of ‘organizing the world’s information’.
Robert Berkman's insight:

There's been lots of "death of search" and "decline of Google" prognosticating over the years, so I'm always skeptical of these kind of pieces--but it is true that the way we find information on the Web is changing quite a bit. But rather than a decline in Google it's more likely that Google will adjust to these changes.

Search and Discovery: How They Complement Each Other

Search and Discovery: How They Complement Each Other | Company & Business Research | Scoop.it

The overload of information on the Web is challenging the monopoly over the consumption of online information using search engines. A new breed of tools, content discovery engines, is gaining traction to complement search engines.

 

The main differences between search and discovery are related to:
- User's goal: an-answer vs awareness
- Occurrence: one-time vs ongoing
- Type of content: popularity vs freshness
- Selection process: algorithm vs user
- Nature of findings: expected vs unexpected
