Yesterday we covered about how Twitter and Google are slap fighting based on Google’s new social search 2.0 release on Tuesday which primarily indexes more of Google’s own Google+ social network and shows it within the top results. Twitter’s General Counsel Alexander Macgillivray provides apparently damning evidence for why Search+ is unfair and how Google+ content is being promoted instead of the most relevant results.
In his tweet, (picture above) he searches for World Wrestling Entertainment Twitter handler ”@wwe” which in conjunction returns 5 Google+ results above the fold, but no sign of Twitter and nor even Facebook. Even on the right hand side contextual Google+ profiles are being shown.
As Marketing Land’s Danny Sullivan interviewed Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt at the CES, he says that Google is open to talking with Twitter and Facebook about expanded access to their data.
Not only twitter is attacking, but media companies are attacking that being of NewYork Times and even EPIC (The Federal Trade Commission) is looking into the matter.
What do you think, is Google+ on the path to become the new Google Buzz? Leave us your comment…
