I found a new search engine yesterday while surfing, Slashtag.it – which claims that it can search the web 3 times faster than any instant search engines do. By looking at the title, I thought it will be like bleeko – a search engine powered by slashtags and facebook integrations, but the difference between blekko and slashtag.it is, blekko trying to include slashtags into their search algorithm but slashtag.it has no algorithm, it simple forwards you to the sites which can give you the best results for your search query.

Now by using this slashtag powered search engine, you will be directed in a single search to appropriate page by a single query.

Google to Delete all “private Google profiles” after July 31

By sudharsan

March 15, 2011

Yes, its true. A topic from Google profiles clearly says that Google is going to delete  all the private profiles after july 31, 2011. But what is the need now to delete those private profiles ?

From recent social updates and improvements from Google, its very clear that Google profile will become one of the best online identity for a person in future. Google social search features and personalization search will be possible only through social profiles links that you shared in G.profiles.

Do read – A pocked guide for Google new social search features.

google delete

If a user don’t want to make the profile visible to public and search bots then then what is the need of creating it and making it as another dummy and spammy account in their server ?

Google says

The purpose of Google Profiles is to enable you to manage your online identity. Today, nearly all Google Profiles are public. We believe that using Google Profiles to help people find and connect with you online is how the product is best used. Private profiles don’t allow this, so we have decided to require all profiles to be public.

Keep in mind that your full name is the only required information that will be displayed on your profile; you’ll be able to edit or remove any other information that you don’t want to share.

If you currently have a private profile but you do not wish to make your profile public, you can delete your profile. Or, you can simply do nothing. All private profiles will be deleted after July 31, 2011.

Recent changes suggest that google is going to launch a “big update” within this may 2011. Already O’Reilly Media founder Tim O’Reilly  confirmed the existence of  new social platform from Google. The question is, whether it will be a facebook killer or a social layer to all its products ?

March 3, 2011

Google has added loads of features to its existing google profiles page, it seems exactly like facebook profile page. They had copied everything from facebook includes recent photos at top, profile photos at left corner, a neat home page design etc., Whether the billion dollars company runs out of idea for designing their profile pages ?!! What is the need to copy from facebook ?

Google may thought that redesigning the page like FB profile may attract users and makes easier for them to edit the information and also they can get full information about person from a single page, anyways this new look is far better than the old one.
