Google Announces New Features

October 23rd, 2009

Marissa Mayer, Vice President of Search Product and User Experience at Google, announced a new Google product called “Social Search” at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco. This feature will allow all Google users to search query results from friends in social networks through their Google Profile.

Although this feature sounds pretty cool, it makes me wonder if it will eliminate the need for users to visit their social networks.

This announcement came hand-in-hand with the unveiling of an agreement Google made with Twitter allowing them to include Twitter updates in Google’s search results. Check out Marissa Mayer’s blog post for more information.

Do you think you will use “Social Search”?
