Google Adds to Its Real Time Search Services
April 15, 2010
Short honk: Every Google watcher on the planet has documented the most recent Google real time search services. I just want to capture the date (April 14, 2010) and the links to the “official” announcements. For the blog post about the new service navigate to “Replay It.” For the experimental find a person to follow service, point your browser to Google Follow Finder. Both services are likely to be used by a smaller percentage of Google.com users. These are advanced search features, and users still bang in two or three words and look at the top results. One important aspect of the Follow Finder is that it appears to be running on the Google Apps Engine. Useful for marketing and intelligence purposes.
