|444:|| Google Rolls Out Social Search|
Social Search can help you find pages your friends have created, and it can also help you find links your contacts have shared on Twitter and other sites. If someone you're connected to has publicly shared a link, we may show that link in your results with a clear annotation.[br][br]Social search results are only visible to you and only appear when you choose to log in to your Google Account. If you're signed in, Google makes a best guess about whose public content you may want to see in your results, including people from your Google chat buddy list, your Google Contacts, the people you're following in Google Reader and Buzz, and the networks you've linked from your Google profile or Google Account. For public networks like Twitter, Google finds your friends and sees who they're publicly connected to as well.
