Update to Google Social Search

We received news this morning that Google have expanded their Social Search networking platform, so thought to share the news with you with the above video which explains what it is all about. It is very exciting indeed and something that we have been preparing for, for some time now.

The big factor in all this, is that Google have said that it will prioritising pages in the search results that have been shared and recommended by your network. To summarise it completely simply think "Personalised results". Note you will only get these results if you have added your connections to Google (Google Settings page) and logged into your Google Account.

There is an official post here at the Official Google Blog, a statement we like from Google is "As always, we want to help you find the most relevant answers among the billions of interconnected pages on the web".

We are making shareability and the management of connections a priority for a number of our clients right now, if you would like to talk to the Flashlight Team about managing your connections, then give the fully trained in Social Media Sales team a call and we can set up a meeting.

In the meantime the Flashlight Team would like to leave you with our new marketing phrase "Content and Connections are King".
