Google Social Search: New Tool Searches Your Friends' Status Updates, Blogs

Google today rolled out Social Search within the Google Labs site. Google announced the new experimental search tool at last week's Web 2.0 Summit.

The Google Labs page explains that with Social Search, you "sign in to Google and do a search. If there's relevant web content written by people in your social circle, it will automatically show up at the bottom of your search results under a section called 'Results from people in your social circle'."
