Google+ Opens to Public, Introduces Search and Huddles with Extras ~ LockerGnome Social Media & Technology

One of the most common complaints about Google+ has been the inability to search content posted by other Google+ users. In fact, it was one of the primary reasons I rarely used the social network, as finding content I was interested in — and not just being shared the most in my circles — was impossible.

Today, Google announced that it has brought the full service of Google search into Google+. Users can now search for any topic, such as “Pumpkins,” and find all posts related to the search, segmented by “Best of” and “Most Recent.” The search results also return related People and Sparks, which are news stories shared on Google+ related to your topic. An “everything” button consolidates the entirety of the search — people, posts and Sparks — into one stream.
