In this paper we describe a novel and practical approach to Web search that combines ideas from personalization and social networking to provide a more collaborative search experience. We described how this has been delivered by complementing, rather than competing with, mainstream search engines, which offers considerable business potential in a Google-dominated search marketplace.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Springer||Copyright (published version):||Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2009||Subject LCSH:||Internet searching
