Facebook Builds Search-Related Patent Portfolio – 02/20/2013
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office recently granted Facebook a patent for incorporating variable values into textual content. In addition to comments in text, it also includes video, articles, images, music files and locations. One patent claim describes the ability to identify context in one language and translate it into another, based on location.
The social network’s patent portfolio continues to gain more search- and ad-serving-related patents that rely on metadata, as well as news feeds.
