Google 0

nonprofiteer (1906180) writes "A journalist at RWW writes an angry screed about the way that Google is starting to privilege Google+ posts over content from other websites. His example is that one of his own RWW stories is outranked by two + posts about the story. He is worried that as Google tries to compete in social, it will ruin its dependable search interface. Madrigal at The Atlantic asks if "the missions of a social network and a search engine are antithetical." http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2012/01/atop-the-litany-of-google-plus-complaints-its-breaking-search/250863/"
