The Top Search-Oriented Facebook Apps

Arnold Jasra reviews the top search-oriented Facebook applications--noting that they're less Web search-focused and more geared toward how to find your friends.

"U-Search-Tube" comes up second with over 850 users, and the app helps members find and share YouTube videos. "Jobmatch" is a job site search engine application, while the "BMW Forum Search" sifts through more than 70 BMW-related forums on the Web.
