In the ever increasing world of personalised search results, Google have added personal results to images. In the screenshot above we can see images from Google+ contacts Trey Ratcliff and Veronica Belmont are shown at the top of the Google Images search result.

During testing a search for “lounge room” yielded 1.5 billion results, not particularly useful, but the 30 personal results is much more approachable. Of course the quality of images depends on the photography skills of your contacts.

So how do you feel about further personalisation of search? Is it beneficial or something you’ll avoid like the plague?
