Google launched its Social Media Search last Monday. The social search engine is still in its experimental stage but it is already available for everyone. Below is a video of the search demonstration.
Here are some of the features of Google Social Search listed on their help page:
1. Finding relevant public content from your social circle – Content will be sourced from your friends’Google and other public profiles, websites, blogs, status updates, tweets, reviews, and Google reader subscriptions.
2. Filter search results to show those that are really only in your social circle.
3. Ability to expand your social circle – You can do this by creating a Google profile (if you don’t have one already), adding content to your profile, subscribing to blogs via Google Readers, add contacts in other social network sites, spreading the word to your friends.
In the next few days I will be playing around with the social search engine then share my thoughts with you.
