Google Amps up the Volume on Social Search

Here we go again! Google just announced a radical change to search – splitting up social search results from the global search results in something it’s calling “Search, plus Your World.” Essentially, you now have the option of doing a search and getting results from your friends (especially ones who are active on Google+) or staying with the traditional global search results.

Read all about it in Google’s blog.

I’ll be writing more about this at a later date, once I have a chance to test this out for myself. What do you think of this development? Will this enhance your search experience? Please comment below!

  1. As long as this is tied to actions a person has taken publicly – giving a +1 or liking something – I guess it is okay. I would not want Google sharing things I’ve merely searched for or read. I feel that is a real invasion of privacy.
