Social Search Quality Signals Real Time Quality Signals Dan Zarrella @DanZarrella

The Problem Web Search is Broken.

Web Search is Too Slow Page to page links are too slow Hours or days to be created Days or weeks to be indexed New Content takes hours or days to find

Social News Sites Hours or days to produce a signal of high quality Too small & niche

Social Networks Facebook (et al) too closed for real API access In-network/connection & scoping & privacy issues

The Solution Twitter for Real Time Signals

ReTweeting is Link Sharing

New Content is Often ReTweeted

Possible Flaws Not Even Twitter is Perfect

Rich Get Richer
