“How Will Google’s Personalization, Real-Time and Visual Search Announcements Change the World?”
Please join us for a discussion every Tuesday at 12PM noon SL (US Pacific Time)
This Tuesday, Dec 8th, we will be at the Epoch Institute in Second Life™
This Week’s Topic
How Will Google’s Personalization, Real-Time and Visual Search Announcements Change the World?
When I saw this cluster of announcements in the last 48 hours, I decided to write a brief thought piece about them. The three new announcements, search results that will be personalized even when you are not logged in, real-time search results and visual search, it seemed to me that these create a new ecosystem for thinking about search, potentially new search optimization automation options (read new companies or services) and potentially some changes to the way we think about advertising, marketing, person to person communication, and even how we think about ourselves.
How will these new features change the world? Will they change the way we socialize, the way we think about each other and the way we interact with each other? Where do we think these features are headed? They are early releases of capabilities – what would we guess are the next steps along each path?
Join us Tuesday at 12PM noon SL, and thanks for being part of “We Are The Network”!
