U.S. — Google's all-seeing eye is to peer even further into the corners of the internet - and it's going to get a speed boost into the bargain.
Google has announced that it will now index comments posted via Facebook - a move that could leave people nervous about what they say in Facebook comment sections.
It isn't quite as terrifying as it sounds - comments you make on private Facebook pages such as your friends' won't be indexed by Google.
But if you comment on another site with Facebook comments built in, Google's 'spider' programmes will find, and index that.
