There is a lot of discussion is going on Google’s Social search termed as Google Search Plus. Which is actually Google’s attempt to integrate Its new social network Google+. Initially Twitter has complained about the search results which are largely tilted towards Google’s own product. lots of articles have been written about companies step. Some consider it as Google’s biggest mistake, some consider it as Google’s monopolistic Step and most alarming is if it is the violation of  Electronic Privacy Information.

Regarding the New Feature, company have stated on its blog that with the new personalized search will work in the following way

  1. Personal Results, which enable you to find information just for you, such as Google+ photos and posts—both your own and those shared specifically with you, that only you will be able to see on your results page;
  2. Profiles in Search, both in autocomplete and results, which enable you to immediately find people you’re close to or might be interested in following; and,
  3. People and Pages, which help you find people profiles and Google+ pages related to a specific topic or area of interest, and enable you to follow them with just a few clicks. Because behind most every query is a community.

Now You see these two buttons for personal or non personal search. personal search brings results of categories mentioned above.

personalized results looks like the figure below

But in my point of view if Google modifies its social search integration a bit, and instead of  placing it with the search as Google currently have done Google should place it in the You+ tab. Because its more obvious that You+ indicates Your Social and personal content. If Google go for it then there is no point to complaining about and freaking  about Google prioritizing its own content instead of linking out to third-party sites.

On the other hand it demolishes  people’s concerns about Electronic Privacy Information Violation  because a few months back a news came out and every one was  talking about the  Microsoft Leaked Its Own Social Networking Secret. Some think that is was an accident other think it was intentional. but i want to make a point here which is one of its feature  “social search with Bing ”

It is quit obvious that Microsoft has already built that social search which Google has just launched and no one have talked about it because Microsoft is not a big player in social networking. But the issue is the same, if Microsoft’s social search is not  a violation of Electronic Privacy Information then Google has not came with some thing different, its the same thing. but Google have placed at wrong place and should Move it to +You tab.

Google has Introduced the new  Voice Search feature

All you need is a built-in or attached microphone. Just click the mic in the search bar and start talking. currently this feature is only available in US English only but later on Goggle may include other languages too.
