Google Gets Social

John Battelle’s Searchblog: Google Gets Social

“Who says Google doesn’t play the tagging, sharing, social search game? Not Google. Today it released a new version of its toolbar that’s very….well…Web 2.0. From SEW coverage: Google has enhanced its toolbar for Internet Explorer, introducing several new features that will appeal to regular users of the program. The new features include enhanced “suggestions” that appear on the fly as you type a query, the ability to add custom buttons to search your favorite sites, the ability to create and save online bookmarks and to share web pages with others. “One of the areas we wanted to focus on was to empower users more,” said Sundar Pichai, Google group product manager.”
