Google and MySpace are going to plunge into real-time. Google implemented the MySpace Real-Time Search API, which means that searchers can find all kinds of content shortly after it was created on the social networking site.
A representative from MySpace wrote in an email to Web Pro News, “Beginning today, when users perform a search on Google, publicly available MySpace stream updates will appear in Google’s Real-Time search results. The results provide a live snapshot of what our users are thinking and doing as it relates to any given search topic, and results are ranked so that only the freshest and most relevant data appears.”
This can be a smart move for both. Google and its users can now get access to more information, even as MySpace and its users gain additional exposure. Google provides its users with updates from both Twitter & MySpace, but Facebook hasn’t been brought into the fold.
