A richer hashtag experience in Google Search
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
. It’ll be live within the next few hours, so give it a go and let us know what you think.#googleplusupdate
