  • Publication number: 20130024439
    Abstract: Architecture that interfaces entities such as a search engine with a social network, by enabling both entities to share a common storage. Search behavior is modeled as a search social graph that incorporates both search behavior and user relationships. The data in the graph can be data mined, and related aggregations (stories) can be surfaced to users of the architecture via websites of both entities. To facilitate collaboration, users can further interact on the aggregations by repeating a query, commenting on a query, and/or suggesting links. This interactive feedback activity can also be modeled and recorded into the search social graph, which generates further aggregations. The positive feedback cycle, as part of the architecture, encourages collaboration and interaction on an aggregation.

  • Publication number: 20130019181
    Abstract: The disclosed architecture provides one or more techniques for selecting social contacts and selecting queries in order to populate the visible space of an activity feed (e.g., social search). A technique is provided that prioritizes selection of social contacts for display in a social search activity feed. Another technique is provided that selects queries for display in the social search activity feed. The architecture also provides visual presentation of the social search activity feed information. These techniques ensure an interesting variety of contributors and content while maintaining a time-ordered presentation paradigm.

  • Patent number: 8122041
    Abstract: Sharing of search histories is facilitated with a computer based system and method that allow a searcher to share search results generated without prior authentication of an identity with a search engine. Sharing and collaboration are further facilitated by allowing search history items to be shared with a minimum of additional searcher input. Context for the search history items is provided by associating a search query with an accessed document link without requiring separate tagging of the link by the searcher.

  • Publication number: 20110258556
    Abstract: Technologies pertaining to the creation of personalized data for an individual, including personalized data based on a social networking participant's social networking data, entity extraction, and automatic collage generation are described herein. In one implementation, the personalized data is used to provide a personalized, social-based replacement for a default UI element. In one implementation, a disambiguated named entity is extracted from user generated content in a social networking application, a socially interesting photomontage is automatically generated based on photographs from a social networking application, and the photomontage is rendered with hotspots containing socially relevant annotations.
