Realtime Search which Google had disabled in early July, is coming back with data from Google+ and other social sources, reports Mashable.
Realtime Search delivers relevant data from Twitter, Facebook and other social media services in realtime. Whenever a major current event made headlines (e.g. Osama’s death), Google Search would start displaying tweets and Facebook updates from users talking about the recent developments. It made Google’s search engine more relevant during major world events.
Last month, google failed to come to an agreement with Twitter for continued access to its tweets without which the product was far less useful, and thus they shut down Realtime search temporarily.
Google Fellow Amit Singhal, said to Mashable that the team was experimenting with adding data from Google+ and other sources.
