Google+ News Shows In Google's News Web Results Box

Rob Garner posted publicly on Facebook an image of a new Google test where Google is showing news results from Google+ in the OneBox area for news content within web search results. Got all that?

A picture will explain it better:

Google News Google+ Results

As you can see, a search for [cory monteith] returns a standard news box, because of the recent news of his death. But below that, Rob is seeing news results from Google+ profiles about the news. I assume he follows and others within his circles?

Google has been forcing Google+ results onto searchers, so this should be no surprise.

Forum discussion at Facebook.
