Google is smart. So they have a new proposition for us. Take all our existing publicly available “social graph” information from Facebook, Twitter, and the like, and when we are searching on Google, they will mix in with their normal results pages taken from your friends blogs, Twitter pages, etc. I have been experimenting over the last few days, and I must say I really like it! In order to make this work you have to set up a Google Profile, which essentially lists all your various services and then enables Google to figure out who is in your social graph. No new list of friends to maintain, you will be glad to know! Take a look at the Google profile for Adrian Warnock to see what it can look like.
