Google Your World

Google has rolled out a new search feature: “Search Plus Your World.”

This new feature allows you to toggle the ‘personal search’ icon any time you do a Google search, which will bring up results from your content and the content of your friends, in addition to regular web results.
The personal results are private only to you and your friends, so you will need to be signed in to Google in order to see them. Google explains its new Search options on its website:
Your photos, your friends, your stuff…
Search has always brought you information from across the web. Now, search gets better by including photos, posts, and more from you and your friends. When signed in with Google+, you’ll find personal results and profiles of people you know or follow. You can even expand your world by discovering people related to your search.
The goal of showing personal results alongside web results is to allow users to get recommendations, photos, posts, and other ideas from friends, and to be able to share more of their lives with people they know. Personal Search also brings up profile names, related pages and people, and Google+ content from your circles.
Give it a try, and tell us what you think!
