Blog Catalog: A New Social Network

BlogCatalog launched its Social Search on March 20,2008 and

The search results, from Social Search, provide a fascinating view into the online social network activities of close to 100,000 bloggers. While doing a search on Wikipedia, after the launch, I came across the entry for Social Search Engine. The entry describes a Social Search Engine, in part, as:

“… a type of search engine that determines the relevance of search results by considering the interactions or contributions of users. Example forms of user input include social bookmarking or direct interaction with the search results such as promoting or demoting results the user feels are more or less relevant to their query.”

Well, I whole heartedly agree that social networking is changing the landscape and that Google’s search algorithm has it wrong. What do my readers think?
