- I love the suggestion and it could work. Now, why is it only Danny that's proposing this?Jan 24, 2012
- The good news is that most of Google+ is based on XMPP, which is a federated chat protocol, meaning that implementing the most important bits via extensions on a normal XMPP server should be reasonably simple.Jan 24, 2012
- Danny, great thoughts. Until Twitter decides to open up their data to all search tools, there's a problem. Until Facebook decides to just open up in general, there's a problem. And if Google decides to move more and more into a "walled garden", there is a problem. I hope all the social networks realize that users should control their data and ability for engines to index that data as you have suggested in your article. It's just like web pages and spidering allowance. Let's hope the debates this week lead to some common ground as you've suggested.Jan 24, 2012

- My response: https://plus.google.com/u/0/110412141990454266397/posts/CfjfiZZdxcy I agree, but I think it doesn't go far enough.Jan 24, 2012
- In the meantime, there's always space for third party tools and search engines to bridge the gap. At Wajam, we let users add social search results from Facebook, Twitter and Google+ directly in Google Search. Here's a video in which compare our results with that of Google Search+YourWorld: http://bit.ly/AumfoKJan 24, 2012
