Google "During its Keynote today, Google announced new features coming to its flagship search function - you know, that thing we all started using Google for. VP Amit Singhal spent some time discussing what Google's search functionality will eventually morph into. Google's strategy is summarized by three words: answer, converse, and anticipate. Singhal explained that many of the pieces of these upcoming changes can already be seen in products that Google has recently introduced - namely, Google Knowledge Graph and Google Now, with perhaps a splash of Google Glass, too." I hold on to my hat every time Google changes Search. It's such a vital product in my daily life.

You have to login to G+ at least once. Then it pops up the "keep your G+ contacts in sync with GMail" and "Let us recommend people to you" options. From what I can tell, you won't get harassed by G+ until you login to it once.


I wonder what I have done differently as I do not ever get any e-mail suggestions about people or groups.

I might or might not have logged into G+ once - might have tapped the icon on my tablet, just to see what it looked like - but for me, I think it's got something to do with a couple of the people in my Gtalk contact list. I used Talk for a while, and it seems some of my contacts added me to some circle of theirs, and Google just 'assumed' that I'd want to know the people that they'd know.
