I wrote about Social Search
last year, blogspace has had it for a while in a form of searching what your friends have found (e.g. my.feedster
). John Battelle, who is blogging the expanding space of search
covered it a month ago. Eurekster launched
its social network constrained search service today.
That said, its is pretty cool
. Sometimes sharing what you are looking for can help you find it and more. The search itself leaves a little to be desired, as its no Google and doesn't benefit from micro-content structure.
Browsing the search terms of your friends (like this
) is similar to looking at them in your referral log. Get ready for a different kind of social spam as people can ping you if they browsed in the same direction as you. It begs the is it a feature
question, but anyway, the beta is out, tinker away.
