Social Website HW8

I chose Google for my social website because it is a very popular website that most everyone with an Internet connection uses. A person goes to Google and types in key words that they want Google to search for, then Google provides links to websites that contain information that a person is looking for. Google obtains this information through algorithims that look at how how the indegree is for a website. Then Google shows the title of the page to the searcher and gives a few sentences with the words the person searched, so the person can click on the site he wants. A competing website is Yahoo. Yahoo and Google are relatively similar except Yahoo provides related searches, where Yahoo shows what other people have searched.
