Google NewsGoogle News has added a new section that gives you personalized news based on your search and Google+ related follows, I believe.

The founder of Google News, Krishna Bharat, posted about it yesterday on Google+ saying "Google News now has a "Suggested for you" section with stories likely to match your interests."

The section aims at giving the consumer stories based on "narrow and local topics specific to you," said Krishna. He added that the "topics and stories shown here will change with the news, to keep things fresh and serendipitous."

Here is a look at what I see in my suggested stories:

Notice, the links under each story say either:

  • You said you were interested in [TOPIC] - Not interested
  • Interested in [TOPIC]? Yes/No

Google News Suggested For You Section

The first is based on me asking for updates about a specific topic or person within the Google Knowledge Graph panel. More on how that works at this story. The second I believe is based on search history.
