Google Searches May Include Google+ Info
ONLINE PRIVACYJanuary 11, 2012
Google search results will now include photos and commentary from its Google+ social network, the Huffington Post reports. "The Internet search leader eventually hopes to know enough about each of its users so it can tailor its results to fit the unique interests of each person looking for something," the report states, in what the company has described as "the new era of social and private data search." The new feature, which was rolled out on Tuesday, will be the default "for all English-language searches made by users logged into Google," the report states, but can be turned off permanently with a settings change or on a per-case basis via an icon.
