August 23, 2010 – Retrieving information from the internet comes in many forms. The most widely used comes via the usual search engines such as Google, MSN, Yahoo, you know the drill. However, based on TechCrunch’s article, “Total Recall: Sentimnt lets you search and retrieve information from your social feeds”, your very own social feeds may power what you look for most.

Claiming to be a personal and social search engine, the concept is to connect to all of your favorite social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and Delicious accounts, then indexing all of the articles and resources so that they can be recalled later. Currently in private beta, it is still a work in progress and very much still on the ground floor.

A decent concept to be sure, but will it actually take off? Google is already dabbling with the same idea. That is the beauty of the internet, always something new to hear about.
