Google Makes Search Personal

In what is being proclaimed as the largest change in Google’s history, it was announced today on Google’s official blog that changes will be a coming for the massive search engine.

If you remember, back in 2009 “social search” was added to Google’s search results. Google is taking a step further:

You should also be able to find your own stuff on the web, the people you know and things they’ve shared with you, as well as the people you don’t know but might want to… all from one search box.

I’d highly recommend you read the entire post by the folks at Google explaining this new service, but this video can give you the highlights.

The most telling point, in my opinion, from Google’s post is this:

While there may be 7 billion people and 197 million square miles on Earth, a septillion stars and a trillion webpages, we spend our short, precious lives living in a particular town, with particular friends and family, orbiting a single star and relying on a tiny slice of the world’s information. Our dream is to have technology enable everyone to experience the richness of all their information and people around them.

Welcome to Google being part of your hometown, folks.
