Your friends and contacts are a key part of your life online. Most people on the web today make social connections and publish web content in many different ways, including blogs, status updates and tweets. This translates to a public social web of content that has special relevance to each person. Unfortunately, that information isn't always very easy to find in one simple place. That's why today we're rolling out a new experiment on Google Labs called Google Social Search that helps you find more relevant public content from your broader social circle. It should be available for everyone to try by the end of the day, so be sure to check back.

As much as I love Matt Cutts, I don't think he should do videos like the one above. When he said at 2:22 "Google can start building a broader social graph" it somehow seemed sinister :P

all of this to get the buzz going when Bing was actually first on this... nothing revolutionary and probably a month of work project for the engineers at Google.

Not so much, they've been working on social graph for years...

Google could re-invent Facebook in a few weeks, and outdo them by miles in server horsepower. Instead, they:

Let Orkut wither on the vine.

Pass up acquiring Facebook when it (maybe) was still possible.

Try to roll all existing products into a single incoherent muddle that very few users are likely to understand.

Either they have got some brilliant trick up their sleeve, as yet unrevealed, or... they've blown it.

Time will tell. I wish them luck. With the focus now on lobbying Washington rather than on pure technology, they are going to need it.
