Google Adds Real Time Search and Hashtag Support To Google+ [news.cnet.com]
Google has built real-time search results into Google+, giving people the ability to watch a live feed of Google+ activity about a given subject.

In addition, the company wired real-time search up to the idea of hashtags, popularized on Twitter by the company's own Chris Messina as a way to flag particular themes. He called for Google+ hashtag support in July, and now when people add the hash symbol in front of a term--"#ios5," for example--it links to search results for that term.

The new features are gradually being enabled for Google+ users now, said Vic Gundotra, the Google senior vice president in charge of Google+, in a Google+ post today.
