Google Launching Social Search In 19 New Languages

google-social-logosGoogle announced they have begun their international rollout of Google Social Search, which launched in October 2009.

Social Search is being pushed out to 19 new languages over the upcoming days and weeks. Google promises even more languages in the near future. Google said, “with these changes, we want to help you find the most relevant information from the people who matter to you.”

In January 2010, Google pushed social search live for many, after a beta release in late 2009. Since then, Google has continued to integrate social signals into the product to make it more relevant and useful for users.

Social Search is a major initiative for Google being that Google has very limited, if any, access to Facebook, and we all know that Bing is ranking results based on Facebook’s social graph.
