On January 10th, 2012 Google launched “Search plus Your World”.
Starting this week, Google+ members will be able to search both the entire web, and their own Google+ social graph. This means all your Google+ posts, photos, and circles will be integrated into your search. This is something other social platforms, such as Facebook, can only dream of.
Google is calling this “your web”. Instead of just searching the web content which is available to everyone, you can also search through things that have been shared to you by not only Google’s social network, but Google’s other services like Picasa.
There are definitely some privacy concerns. To counter this, Google’s Search plus Your World only works if you’re signed into Google+ and searching on Google’s secure search at https://www.google.com. And, if you try and you don’t like it, Google is adding a toggle button to switch to good old fashioned Google search.
Here is a quick video demonstrating the new search.
