For the most part Google’s cofounders have been relatively quiet in their public postings on Google+.But, Sergey Brin recently started posting a few more things, including asking his followers what kind of recumbent road bike he should buy.
Brin got 160 answers to his question.
It’s interesting to see him using Google+ to get a product recommendation.
On some level, Facebook could disrupt Google search if users relied on social recommendations for products. (Google search engineers tend to dismiss social as a small search signal.)
If this works for Brin, it could be the start of Google inserting product recommendations from your friends via Google+.
