Back in January, I wrote a bit about Facebook's Graph Search and connected the dots between that product and a future foray into speech recognition:

With Facebook taking the lead with Graph Search and already cozying up to linguists and the like, it isn't that big of a stretch of the imagination to picture them getting into the speech recognition space themselves in the not-too-distant future.

Sure enough, it was revealed last week that Facebook is working on speech recognition. I'll be watching very closely to see what they come up with.
