@reseller, so what is new? What is the new rollout
@tedster, so surely it can be made more sophisticated? Just as link buyers now often ask for in-content links, social media spam profiles could easily be negative at random.
Incidentally, Google are definitely mining data from Twitter in some ways. G+ suggested Nina Paley as "someone you may know" and the only connections are 1) I downloaded her brilliant kids cartoon (Sita Sings the Blues) from her site, 2) I mentioned the film (but not her on FB) and 3) I follow her on Twitter. Google cannot know the first (especially as I used the torrent), and the third is much more direct than the first..
