Jaime Teevan from Microsoft Research chairs this session at Faculty Summit 2012.

Social search is an emerging research area that explores how social interactions and social data can enhance existing information-seeking experiences, as well as enable new information retrieval scenarios. This session will showcase different models of social search, including 1) the use of social data to augment search, 2) social data as new information to be searched, and 3) social interaction and collaboration as part of the search process.
