New features, Google Images and Social Search is now for everyone, in beta.

<<Late last year we released the Social Search experiment to make search more personal with relevant web content from your friends and online contacts. We were excited by the number of people who chose to try it out, and today Social Search is available to everyone in beta on google.com.>>

I just noticed search results under the title : "results from people in your social circle"

It clearly says BETA and links to "My social circle" and "My social contents"

Anyone else get this?

Google now shows your Social Circle connections in a link from their social Search results:

google.com/s2/search/social

There are 3 tiers of connections:

1. Direct connections from your Google chat buddies and contacts

2. Direct connections from links listed on your Google profile such as Twitter and FriendFeed

3. Secondary connections that are publicly associated with your direct connections

But Google seems terribly slow at updating the connections
