  • Publication number: 20190163836
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes accessing a mention table of entries that each have: (1) a string, (2) a count of a number of times the string is used in a corpus, and (3) a count of a number of times the string is linked to another document. The method also includes calculating, for each n-gram of a search query from a querying user, a link probability that represents the likelihood that the n-gram corresponds to an entity associated with a communication network. The method also includes identifying content objects that match the search query and ranking the content objects based at least in part on on the calculated link probability. The method also includes sending instructions to present the search results on a client system of the querying user.

  • Patent number: 9104751
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media for presenting supplemental search results having indications that identified documents have been endorsed by the user and/or social network connections of the user are provided. A search query is received and it is determined that the user's social networking data is available. Documents that have been endorsed by the user and/or social network connections of the user are searched to identify those that satisfy the input search query. The satisfying documents are assigned a relevance score to determine whether each satisfying document is relevant enough to be shown and to determine placement of the document on the SERP relative to standard search results. Upon rendering of the SERP, a supplemental search result identifying documents that were endorsed by the user and/or social network connections of the user is presented, as is an indication about which social network connection(s) of the user endorsed the document.

  • Publication number: 20130325847
    Abstract: Improved, personalized searching through the use of personal connection graphs is presented. Responsive to receiving a search query, the search engine obtains a user sketch (representing a user's connection graph) and obtains search results responsive to the search query and also based, in part, as a function of a relationship distance between the user and the referenced content as determined by the user sketch. One or more search results pages are generated from the obtained search results and returned to the user.

  • Publication number: 20130212081
    Abstract: Systems, computer-readable media, and methods for tagging documents based on a graph pertaining to one or more entities which a user has included in a search query. The user may have at least one social networking relationship with the entity. A search engine is configured to display a search engine results page in response to the search query received from the user. The search engine may also receive suggested tags that identify documents that could be linked to the entity identified in the query. The user may confirm that the suggested tags are appropriate via feedback that is transmitted to the search engine. In turn, the search engine updates a graph to reflect a number of users that agree with the suggested tag.

  • Publication number: 20130110827
    Abstract: Systems, computer-readable media, and methods for utilizing information pertaining to one or more individuals or entities with which a user has at least one social networking relationship are provided. A search engine is configured to receive a query, to identify matching electronic documents, to rank the electronic documents, and to transmit the matching electronic documents and/or advertisements to the user in response to receiving a query. Upon receiving the query from a user, the search engine obtains a social network identifier of the user and utilizes information about the user's social networking relationships to augment the query with nonretrieval modifiers. The search engine processes the nonretrieval modifiers matching the electronic documents included in search results and ranks the results but does not use the nonretrieval modifiers to identify or retrieve results matching the query. The ranked electronic documents are included in the results and displayed in rank order to the user.

  • Publication number: 20130110802
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media for tagging uniform resource locators (URLs) included in a search engine results page are provided. Upon receipt of a search query that includes a name of an entity, the server device provides search results and entry fields to tag one or more URLs that correspond to the entity. The server device obtains a social network of the user that provided the query. The server device processes the social network to locate entities that match the query and that are within a threshold number of hops. The user may tag one or more URLs with social network account information for the entities based on authorization information received from an owner that manages the social network account.

  • Publication number: 20130097143
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media for presenting results of search queries with indications that at least a portion of such results has been endorsed by the user and/or social network connections of the user, are provided. Upon receipt of a search query, Web search results satisfying the query are determined. Satisfying search results that have been endorsed by the requesting user and/or one or more social network connections of the requesting user are identified. Upon presentation of the search results on the SERF, those results that were identified as having been endorsed by the requesting user and/or one or more social network connections of the requesting user are annotated as such. In this way, the requesting user may be able to more readily identify personally relevant results as the annotated results have been indicated to be preferences of the user and/or his or her social network connections.

  • Publication number: 20090063464
    Abstract: The present invention is directed towards system and methods for generating a visual representation indicating performance of a system capable of accepting one or more inputs and producing an ordered set of one or more responsive outputs. The method of the present invention comprises selecting one or more benchmark inputs and generating an ordered output set for each of the one or more benchmark inputs, a given output set comprising one or more output items responsive to a given benchmark query. One or pixels representing the one or more output items comprising the one or more outputs sets are generated, a given pixel containing a visual representation indicating a degree to which the output item represented by the pixel is relevant with respect to the benchmark input to which the output item is responsive. The one or more pixels representing the one or more output items comprising the one or more output sets are arranged in a circle in a manner indicative of the performance of the system.

  • Publication number: 20080148049
    Abstract: An exemplary method for providing secure access to resources at shared appliances comprises obtaining an instruction from a first user to send a resource to a secure repository, the resource being associated with a first identifier, receiving a second identifier from a shared appliance, determining a pseudo identity associated with the shared appliance based on the second identifier, granting to the shared appliance permissions associated with the pseudo identity, including a permission to retrieve the resource from the secure repository, receiving the first identifier from a second user at the shared appliance, and enabling the shared appliance to provide the resource to the second user at the shared appliance.
