Default Wikipedia Founder Jimmy Wales Declares Wikia Search Dead

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales announced that Wikia Search, a community-based search engine, is officially shutting down. Unlike Google, whose search relies on algorithms, user ratings and input determine the results ranking in Wikia Search. Before its demise, Wikia Search had been the fifth-fastest-growing member community destination in February 2009, after Twitter, Zimbio, Facebook and Multiply.
