Collecta: True Real-Time Social Search – Try this

18 06 2009 - Real-time search engines made our list as one of the top 5 Twitter related trends to watch, not only because the demand for these tools has increased, but also because we’re seeing services like Tweetmeme and OneRiot innovate at lightning speed in this space.

Collecta, which launches today, is also tackling real-time search, but their search engine uses XMPP technology and works to keep pace with information as it happens — faster than we’ve ever seen before — on blogs, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, news sites, and various other social sites.

At its core, Collecta is a search engine, but with the primary purpose of being completely real-time. So just type your search query, and watch as Collecta returns photos, videos, tweets, status updates, news items, and blog posts from across the web, and displays them in a constantly updating stream.
