It took a couple of months from announcement to action but Google (NSDQ: GOOG) will start pulling in real-time search results from MySpace (NYSE: NWS) into Google search today. That means publicly available MySpace updates and other data should show up in Google real-time search results, as is already the case with Twitter — giving the older social network some real-time cred and the chance to reach people whom otherwise wouldn’t seek it out. The MySpace API also provides real-time results for blog posts and other publicly available data, which in turn can be used to show a snapshot of how users are reacting to something at any given point, as new MySpace co-president Mike Jones explains in a blog post.
