A new Google Docs

A new Google Docs | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

They say a house is only as good as its foundation, and we believe the same holds true for web applications like Google Docs.

 

With our old foundation, we could continue delivering most features you wanted quickly, but over time it became clear that some just weren’t possible. So we decided to rebuild the underlying infrastructure of Docs to give us greater flexibility, improved performance and a better platform for developing new features quickly.

 

Today, we’re pleased to announce preview versions of the new Google document and spreadsheet editors and a new standalone drawings editor, all built with an even greater focus on speed and collaboration. To get a taste of what’s new today, check out our video:

Google+ Launches Real-Time Search and Hashtag Support | HubSpot

Google+ Launches Real-Time Search and Hashtag Support | HubSpot | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

A couple of months ago, we discussed Google's hint that it may be bringing back real-time search. If you remember, Realtime Search was discontinued in Google web search due to Google's failure to come to an agreement with Twitter, whose data Google had been accessing to deliver accurate real-time results.

 

The idea was that Google+ would provide Google with the data it needed to create a real-time feature robust enough to re-introduce to search results, even without data from Twitter. Well, it looks like Google is moving to making good on its promise. Yesterday, Google began rolling out real-time search functionality for its search feature within Google+. In addition, it also released hashtag support. Now, when users include a hashtag in any of their Google+ updates, the hashtag will automatically appear as a link to search results for the term...

Guillaume Decugis's comment, October 31, 2011 12:43 PM
Thanks Robin: good article as well and yes, good point on attribution being key.
Robin Good's comment, October 31, 2011 12:49 PM
Thank you Guillaume for your positive feedback!

Consider for example that if you curate something and then another curator republishes it. All fine. You get credit. But then if a second and third curator do the same, the credit gets lost unless they do something manually.

This is just a consideration on which to think, as the attribution and credit element will gain strength in the coming months.

Scoring: that's another weak point. I have looked closely at the scores Scoop.it gives out and I remain very perplexed of how certain low-quality channels can get such high scores. Something not right in there as well that needs looking into.

:-) Keep it up!
