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.

iTunes in the living room? Really this time?

http://modmyi.com

The talk of "convergence" - the unification of computers, set-top boxes, and mobile devices - has been around for a while. And for the most part it's been pure vapor. However, there's reason to believe that if anyone can do it, it's Apple.

There's an increasing crescendo of rumormongering - most of it emanating from Piper Jaffray research analyst Gene "Herman" Munster - of a new Apple TV release on September 9. You remember Apple TV, right? Everybody's favorite WTF? device has been sort of hanging around waiting for its killer app. iTunes downloads and Flickr galleries, obviously, were not it.

Munster thinks the announcement will involve a DVR, which Dan Dilger from AppleInsider thinks would be a terrible idea. More interestingly, Munster has suggested a subscription on-demand service, like Hulu or Netflix.

A tantalizing hint comes in Snow Leopard's support for HTTP Live Streaming, which does an end-run around closed formats like Real and Microsoft's ActiveX streaming. Like Shoutcast, it uses a simple HTTP stream, unlike RTSP streams which are often blocked by firewalls.

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.
