In light of my recent post on networked group think, I am concerned at Google’s recent moves to extend their social search functionality. One of the reasons Google was valuable to me was due to its wide net and broad focus. Social search may just make Google too narrow for my liking – ut I am pleased to see that individuals are at least able to customise the social sources of your searching.

So far this new version of social search seems to only apply to US-based accounts – but expect it to come to a search engine near you, very soon.
