Thumbs down Google's Social Circle Reveals Your Contact's "Other" Social Connection

If you haven't tried this Google feature yet, Google Social Circle enables Google account owners to trace down their contacts connection to them through auto-search of their social networking connection like twitter, myspace, youtube, etc.

The Google product also apply labeling of your possible connections to others via the links that appear on your Google account and Google profile especially if you share links to your Google profile.

Features: Google Social Search

Google Social Search helps you discover relevant content from your social connections, a set of your online friends and contacts. Content from your friends and acquaintances is sometimes more relevant and meaningful to you than content from any random person. For example, an online movie review is useful, but a movie review from your best friend can be even better.

Social search results

If you're signed in to Google, your search results may highlight relevant content that's created by or shared by your social connections. Your Social Search experience is personal and the highlighted content that you see is unique to you and your social connections.

Here are some of the types of content you might see:

* Websites, blogs, and other content that's shared by or created by your friends
* Images that are shared by your social connections
* Relevant articles from your Google Reader subscriptions
* Profiles of people you know beneath results for social sites like Twitter and Flickr

If you want to see more results from your social connections, click More Search Tools or Show Search Tools on the left panel of the search results page and select Social to filter your results.
It's easy to see which results are social search results by looking at the annotations on search results. For example, beneath a movie review shared by your friend Jake, you may see Jake's name and picture. You can click Jake's name to see his profile page, and hover over the annotation to reveal more information about how you are connected to Jake.

Your social connections

Social Search is powered by your social connections, a group of people including some of your Gmail contacts, public friends on sites like Twitter, and public friends of these friends. You can influence who is part of your social connections. Learn more about your social connections
I think this could help you trace your immediate business contacts especially those that are closely related to your business.

This is the first I have heard of Google's Social circle.

It seems Google is trying to get you to aggregate all of your social network connections together in one place. A definite move to try and get some of the social networking pie.

It may be found useful. What is seems to be to me is them trying to regain their former domain as the starting point through which people use other sites, like they used to be for most. Now most people use Facebook for that.
