Google Plus gets personal and adds a twist to how it displays search matches. When you enter a search, Google returns not just a normal listing of web results. It pools together public results and your personal results. The listing becomes a combination of matches based on private or shared content, Google Plus public content, and results from the rest of the web.
Private content refers to content shared with friends and family on Google Plus or what it calls “circles.”
This personalized view is only possible if you’re on Google Plus and signed in.
Personalized results include:
- Results based on content shared by you and your social connections
- Results based on your preferences or activities
- Results based on Google Plus public content
Plain and simple: content in your WORLD appears as matches along with content from outside your WORLD.
