The #hashtags you see in Google+ posts are a useful way to discover conversations around a particular topic. In May we added related hashtags to the Google+ stream, turning any post into an opportunity to go deeper and explore what’s interesting to you.
Today we’re bringing a richer hashtag experience to Google Search. Here’s how it works:
- When you search on Google for a hashtag, say [#AmericasCup] or [#WaterfallWednesday], a set of relevant Google+ posts may appear to the right of regular results.
- You’ll only be able to see posts that have been shared publicly or shared with you.
- If you click on any of these posts you'll go to Google+, where you'll see the full set of relevant posts.
- You'll also see links to search for these hashtags on other social sites.
Today's update will be available (initially) to English language users in the US and Canada on google.com and google.ca. It’ll be live within the next few hours, so give it a go and let us know what you think.
READ!--- Update--- Ahhh cynics, you have to love them don't you :) Sad though that some are able to see the most basic of things for which they are---this post is only to inspire those to go and and do the same exact thing! It's Christmas, go make someone's heart smile. That is what the season is about! *Merry Christmas!*
I thought that I would go shoot some photos of downtown Denver this morning and I am glad I did. I came upon a very busy intersection when I saw a girl who looked about to be in her early to mid 20s who was obviously very new at being homeless. Odd I thought, not your typical homeless person when you think of that. Pulling up next to her, flashers on, I rolled down my window and gave her $2. I looked at her and said "Merry Christmas" and she looked at me, thanked me deeply and started to cry. I don't think i have ever wanted to truly hug someone so much in my life. I pulled away and proceeded to head back towards downtown when I remembered that McDonald's was open in some locations today. ~Lightbulb Moment!~ I went around the block, pulled up again by her and asked "You like coffee? Cream or sugar?" She lit up and replied with "I drink it black!" to which I said "Ok stay here, be right back, I am getting you some coffee and buying you breakfast as well!" I thought she was about to pass out.
So, 2 extra large cups of coffee, 2 Sausage McGriddles and 2 Western Burritos later, I think she is pretty darn full! I gave her one of my business cards and told her "anytime you want someone to talk with, get a hold of me". My Dad who was with me was pretty floored by what I did and said "you know John, she is very very pretty! She could model for heavens sake". I looked at him and said "I know but that is irrelevant. I just wanted her to think there is still hope and to smile. It's Christmas!"
For me, this is what it's about! This is what Christmas means! Making someone's day who never would have expected it! Pay it forward people, it's Christmas! Let us celebrate!
