Google Adds Facebook Friends to Results
By Tony Ruscoe

I’m not sure how new this is, but when a Facebook user’s profile is returned in Google’s search results, you can now see the user’s location (or network) and a random selection of their friends, as shown on their public profile.

I’m not seeing any special markup in the Facebook profile page, but could this be Google’s “Rich Snippets” feature in action, as announced at this year’s Searchology conference?

[Thanks Luke!]
