Google to Become Friendlier with Social Search

http://blog.ineedhits.com

Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, FriendFeed & Flickr are all pretty common names in the social networking world, but now social and search are about to combine thanks to Google.

At the Web 2.0 expo last week, Google’s Vice-President of Search Marissa Mayer surprised everyone with the announcement that Social Search is coming via Google Labs.

This new search feature will allow you to see search query results from people in your social network. By using your Google Profile, (if you fill it out with the other social networks you’re a member of, such as FriendFeed) Google will scan who you are connected to and give your results from those people if they are relevant to your search query.

At the expo, Mayer demonstrated how a search for ’New Zealand’ produced a list of search results that included relevant content from friends half-way down the search results page. Among the search results were links from different friends, the first to a Gmail message that mentioned New Zealand and the second, a FriendFeed entry.

Google Social Search Goes Live

http://mashable.com

Last week launched the social revolution for search. Microsoft’s Bing fired the first shot by announcing search deals with Twitter and Facebook and, at the Web 2.0 Summit, launching its Twitter integration. Google fired back almost immediately though, completing its own deal with Twitter and, perhaps more importantly, announcing a new feature: Social Search.

Social search, demoed at the Web 2.0 Summit by Google’s VP of Search Marissa Mayer, combines results from your friend’s blogs, Flickr (Flickr), Twitter (Twitter), FriendFeed (FriendFeed), and a wide variety of other social media sites (so long as your friends have connected their social accounts to their Google (Google) profiles) with Google’s regular search results. The feature will go live this afternoon, and can be found within Google Labs.

The experimental feature, once activated, will display relevant search results from your social circle at the bottom of the search results page. This could be travel photos from your friends, a recent blog post, a set of status updates, or other information Google pulls.

Online Dating Profile Advice - Getting Online Dating Profile Help

http://www.123datingtips.com

As if you weren’t under enough pressure on a first date, you’ve got to let the other person know something about you and what characteristics about you are unique and special. And, if you’re trying to do this in the middle of a crowded bar, it becomes almost an impossible task. Grace, tact and any degree of sophistication take the back seat when you’ve got to shout to be heard. Add to that, the fact that the clock is ticking away on the time available. If you’re not able to stir some interest in the other party, your chances of doing so slide away.

However, there is an alternative to these frantic attempts to make a positive first impression - it’s with a profile at an online dating site. Developing your own profile can be done at your leisure. You can take the time to craft something you feel represents the “real” you. Once that profile is posted, other interested singles can browse through it, re-read sections to make sure they understood, and do so without distraction. They can actually concentrate on what they’re reading about you, without the disturbances you’d get in a bar.

Yahoo gives Mail, Messenger and Search a social twist

http://thenextweb.com

While many of the people who consider themselves the ‘Web Elite’ moved to Google’s trendier services a long time ago, Yahoo still has a vast number of users. That’s why it’s still important when Yahoo updates its services.

Yahoo has announced of number of upgrades to key Yahoo properties including Mail and Messenger. The updates see a new emphasis on social data from around the web.

Here are the key changes:
Yahoo Mail
- Yahoo Mail has had a much-needed social overhaul. It will now be possible to see updates from your friends’ social activity around the web (Flickr uploads and Twitter updates for example) within Mail.
- New tools help you edit photos, share and organise photos (including access to Flickr direct from Mail), save and share up to 100MB of files and send money from your PayPal account.
- There’s a new, better optimised mobile version of Yahoo Mail.
- You can find out more at Yahoo Mail’s changes overview page.
Yahoo Messenger
- The biggest update here is Video chat, something that surprisingly has been missing from Yahoo’s venerable IM client until now.
- The social activity monitor featured in Yahoo Mail is also here.

Google Launches A Major Offensive Against Microsoft With “Going Google”

http://www.techcrunch.com

Microsoft and Google have seen their rivalry kicked up a notch in recent weeks. First, Google announced Chrome OS, the company’s first operating system. Then Microsoft announced the new version of Office with major cloud app support. Then Microsoft announced its deal to take over Yahoo’s search business. Starting today, Google is back on the offensive, with a major promotional campaign to get the word out about organizations switching to Google apps for their daily computing needs.

The campaign, called “Going Google,” has a very clear target: Microsoft Office. A series of advertisements [disclosure: including on this blog] will begin touting how and why some 3,000 organizations are signing up to use Google apps each day. But the crown jewels of this campaign will be billboards on four major U.S. highways that will give a new message about Google apps everyday for a month.

What Just Happened? Thursday Was Supposed To Be Bing Day.

http://aine.newsvine.com

You know that scene in the Lord Of The Rings movie where the huge eye of Sauron on top of that mountain swings its view from the alliance troops massed at the Black Gate of Mordor over to the real action, Frodo with the Ring at the Cracks of Doom? That's basically what happened today. The eyes of the world, and the press, swung from San Diego to San Francisco as they realized what was happening. And what was happening was this: Google stole Microsoft's thunder with one of the most ambitious and exciting products the tech world has seen in a long while.
