real life example of how personalized search is working for Singhal. He shared this photo of his dog, Chikoo, on Google+ in a limited manner, rather than with the entire world. The other photos of the dog that you can see, including one from his wife, Shilpa, were also privately shared.
Before today’s change, a Google search wouldn’t have found any of these photos when Singhal, his wife or anyone he’s shared them with searched for “chikoo,” which is a fruit. That’s because since the photos were private, Google couldn’t see them.
Instead, if Singhal or others with access to these photos wanted to find them, they would have had to use the completely separate Google+ Search.
The new feature will also work to find Google+ posts that have been shared in a limited manner, or for Google Picasa photos shared privately.
