Google rushes out Social Search tool

Service finds relevant public content from friends and contacts

Google has released a beta version of a search tool aimed at users of social networking sites.

The company said at the Web 2.0 Summit last week that the ability to search Twitter feeds will be added in a few months, but has surprised many by getting it out so soon. Microsoft’s Bing engine started social networking searches last week.

"Today we are rolling out a new experiment on Google Labs called Google Social Search that helps you find more relevant public content from your broader social circle," said Google in a blog post.
