Google bring us separate Real Time search engine. Er, okay
It’s another day and that means only one thing – Google hurling some more shit against a wall to see if it’ll stick.
Yesterday it was VOIP calls through Gmail, while today it’s a stand-alone place for their ‘Real Time’ search engine. That’s the recently-launched feature that gives you bang-up-to-the-minute updates from social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and something we’ve never heard of called MySpace.
Google Real Time is still at an experimental stage but you can find it here. Google say that one of its handiest uses will be for companies to find out what is being said about them across the various social networks. It’ll prove to be particularly useful for media companies, allowing them to instantly gauge the reaction to their latest movies, TV shows or recorded musical albums.
As for the rest of us, will any of you use it as a stand-alone search engine or will you be like us and just continue to ignore its annoying presence at the top of the normal Google results page?
