Rate this Entry
It seems as though this is "one of those days that the Internet changed". At least a big part of the Internet made a major change today. [URL="http://www.google.com/insidesearch/plus.html#u=gp"]Google announced[/URL] they are rolling out what is likely the largest change in the concept of Google's search engine results page. Search, plus Your World is billed by Google as "Your photos, your friends, your stuff. . ." Google's home page takes you to [URL="http://www.google.com/insidesearch/plus.html#u=gp"]Google's Inside Search page[/URL] which explains, "[COLOR=#333333]Search has always brought you information from across the web. Now, search gets better by including photos, posts, and more from you and your friends. When signed in with Google+, you’ll find personal results and profiles of people you know or follow. You can even expand your world by discovering people related to your search."

The reasoning behind it is that we all trust our friends for information, and now with all the Google products and enhancements and social networks their search will feature results from your friends across the internet including, pictures, Google + content from your circles, profiles in search and related people and pages. Of course, Google gives you the option to control your personal search options and turn them on and off as you wish. They are also clearly labeled with a blue person icon.
