Google was late to understand the idea of relevant searches didn’t mean nothing unless they are socially interconnected through relationships. It later incorporated information from Flickr, Twitter and other sites so that users have a more relevant search result. Status update and sharing information among users was possible via Buzz.

That was just the beginning. Google was looking a better place to put related and relevant information in one place, a social platform. The Google profiles was meant to be a personal information platform. But Google started to infuse social form into it. The profiles section got revamped recently as part of their social strategy. The profiles page was not only to become a better user interface, but a future placeholder for personalized shared and related information and search results. Does the design looks familiar, something like Facebook? Yes, indeed.

Google +1With the introduction of +1, Google is taking relevancy to the next level, by enabling sharing recommendations to the world. Finally, all Google indexed information and data is getting a social form. Recommendations are now being part of the Google Profiles. Watch, the Google Profiles has already become a social platform in our eyes.

Do you think this going to be a Facebook killer? or at least matches Facebook in the long run? Add your thoughts in the comment section. What impact will it have in the whole social media arena?
