Google undergoes most radical change ever

Facebook isn’t the only major website that can’t seem to leave “good enough” alone. Nope, Google likes to do the same thing and they just did again. According to SearchEngineLand.com, these changes are “their most radical transformation ever.”

Google has announced an update called “Search, plus Your World.” This change can personalize your searches and include data from Google’s social network.

“Search is pretty amazing at finding that one needle in a haystack of billions of Web pages, images, videos, news and much more,” Google said on their blog.

“But clearly, that isn’t enough. You should also be able to find your own stuff on the Web, the people you know and things they’ve shared with you, as well as the people you don’t know but might want to … all from one search box.”

The company then said: “Search is simply better with your world in it.”

Danny Sullivan of SearchEngineLand.com writes:

The new system will perhaps make life much easier for some people, allowing them to find both privately shared content from friends and family plus material from across the web through a single search, rather than having to search twice using two different systems.

However, Search Plus Your World may cause some privacy worries, as private content may appear as if it is exposed publicly (it is not). It might also cause concern by making private content more visible to friends and family than those sharing may have initially intended.

My favorite part about this new function is that you can turn it off. You might be able to see this on Google right away, but if not, probably in the next few days.
