Google social search launches
It was an announcement in the 'shadow' of the Twitter deal Google (and Bing) made last week. But it could very well turn out to be the announcement which changes the way we search: Google social search.
After you've opted in you have to be signed in to Google to get relevant information from the people within your "social circle". This social circle is build up from the information you are giving Google in your Google profile.
Google only looks through public data presented in the social networking accounts you added in your Google Profile. Therefore don't expect to get information from Facebook. That information after all isn't made public by Facebook.
The 'circle' Google looks in is deeper than just your friends. If you follow me and I follow someone else, the information of my friends could also be available for you. Google allows you to not only opt in or opt out, but also to change which social network you want to add. What is nice is that you can see in which way you are connected to someone.
The results for now are placed at the bottom of the search results page.
