Search and social media now have another feature in common. Over the last quarter Google started returning hashtag related content from Google Plus within regular search results. Depending on how you have your security settings configured on your profile, any posts or content that you tag can now show up in the search results of anyone that is within your Circles. While it may not display all of your content to the general public, it still may be worth visiting your Google Plus privacy settings for your own security.
