Alive and Kikin

Kikin launched a search-engine plug-in that integrates content from social-networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as Amazon, eBay and YouTube, alongside results from Google, Bing and Yahoo!, TechCrunch reported.

TechCrunch added that the pane on the plug-in also allows users to retweet, and the plug-in uses Facebook Connect to mine Facebook users’ news streams. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
