Google Social SearchGoogle announced that Google Social Search, which was officially launched in October 2009, is now being rolled out globally.

Google said they are starting with 19 languages and then rolling it out to more languages in the near future.

As some of you may remember, Social Search is now deeply integrated into Google's search results. It has taken Google a year and a half but they are now finally letting non English users use social search.

One webmaster said in a WebmasterWorld thread:

It's taking personalized search to new levels.

Soon, there will be no universal search.

I wonder how concerned Google is with the Facebook-Bing integration. Bing is slowly chipping away at Google's market share, and Facebook isn't in any hurry to team up with the search giant. Google is determined to own social search. It makes sense they would roll it out globally.

Here come Social Distortion, no not the band. Nope, instead, the effect of using such flawed popularity signals.  So easily gamed and such useless content to boot. This will only make Google's search more confusing, more corrupted and create a longer line of bad actors.

Perfect! this is absolutely great for everyone. I'm happy that it's globally available and for sure billions of people would be glad to try it out.  One of the best addition and hopefully would improve a lot in the coming days and months.
