Google Search Results Public Comments Option for Live Sports Test Spotted
Although Google+ is in its final days, slated for shut down next year, that doesn’t end the company’s interest in social media. Google search results public comments would first appear for live sports. However, it would also place a partition between professional commentators and viewers. Of course, Google would include moderation to reduce spam and other abuses.
It’s an interesting development, even if it doesn’t come to fruition. Adding public comments to certain search categories would definitely make it more social. Because of this, people would also be far more likely to hang around instead of quick checks to see the latest scores. Which gives the search engine yet another opportunity to ink sports deals and expand its advertising prowess.
