Google’s Search Now Getting More Social

August 26, 2010

This morning Google gave their realtime search it’s own domain which can be found at

If you don’t know what Google realtime search is then you’re not alone, a lot of people don’t. Google’s realtime search is a search engine dedicated to finding information from social media websites like Twitter, Facebook, and Google Buzz.

I find that this move came at the perfect time for Google. Google has been bringing all of the tools together in one place and making them more “social”, and in order to make these tools more useful they needed to provide a way for users to search through these tools.

The only downside that I see right now is that I am not able to narrow down my search by social media tool. For example: If I want to find all posts about Google from only Google Buzz there is no way to do so at this time.

Overall I love the idea of realtime search and I look forward to seeing any changes that they add to this service.
