Google Realtime Is Down

Google Inc. has temporarily shut down a search engine feature that allows users to find real-time updates from Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed and other social networking sites.

A message posted yesterday on Twitter by the team behind Google Realtime says the search feature has been temporarily disabled while Google explores how to incorporate its recently launched Google+ project into the feature. The tweet tells readers to “stay tuned.”

Gabriel Stricker, a Google spokesman, says the company envisions including Google+ information along with other Realtime data from a variety of sources.

Google+ is the search giant’s latest stab at entering the social networking segment of the Internet. The project was unveiled last week and lets users share things with small groups of people.
