Google has rolled-out real time search results for all users, bringing updates from news sites as well as Facebook and Twitter which will appear within seconds of being posted.
Revealing Google’s real-time search features, Google’s vice-president of engineering, Amit Singhal, said it will add more information sources as they appear and revealed the rational behind the new developments: “Information is being posted at a pace we’ve never seen before. In this information environment, seconds matter.
To see Google’s real-time search feature, search for something, then click on “show options” and select “latest” from the left hand menu when it appears. You’ll be greeted by a box above the more traditional search results which will show scrolling updates from Facebook, Twitter and news sites.
