Social Searching

As a follow-up to my earlier post on Google Scholar and Windows Academic Live, this announcement has really caught my attention...

Microsoft Gets Social
Redmond has big plans for tools and partnerships that will let users consult a circle of friends when conducting Web searches

Talk about different a different take on web searching. I wonder how this might muddy the waters by perhaps creating a new spin and a different meaning for "trusted (as in one's 'circle of friends') searching"?

Any thoughts?

Maybe a positive tag from someone on your "friends" list influences sort order?
