Doing a search on Google yesterday, I could see what my Twitter contacts are recommending (check the picture). Of course this raised my curiosity, and I wanted to look at the recommended link.
It looks like this +1 stuff is a smart move, this suggests that somehow the content of the link is interesting, although there’s no guarantee that it’s 100% relevant for what I’m looking for.
+1 results are built upon my Twitter social graph and what people are “plus oneing” when logged into their Google account (you can see the +1 icon right on the result title). I wonder how long it will take before integrating with my Facebook contacts, but I’m afraid this issue is more about politics between Facebook and Google than technology. I wonder too if Facebook can bare Google from creating an app accessing one’s contacts?
In the future, it would be nice to have contacts from LinkedIn as well.
