Social search: down but not out?
Only a few weeks ago Google announced social search. This potentially big change in the way we search was launched in labs and therefore in beta. Yesterday Mashable found that Social Search was down. Is the experiment already over?
It turns out Google has taken social search down for at least three days. According to Mashable the service will be inaccessible until Monday or Tuesday. Google didn't give any reason for the service being down.
"The Google Social Search experiment is temporarily down. We are working on it and expect to restore access sometime Monday or Tuesday"
For now we'll just wait and see what happens.
