Google Rich Social Snippets

// // March 21st 2011 // SEO

I am seeing a new type of snippet on Google SERPs for certain social site profiles.

This rich social snippet includes a profile image as well as the most recent update from that individual.

I am seeing the new snippet for Twitter and FriendFeed profiles. I have not been able to produce a rich social snippet for Facebook or LinkedIn profiles.

In addition, it looks like the snippet might have a real-time trigger and is only displayed if that person has participated on that platform within the last hour.

What do you think of rich social snippets? Is this new or have you seen it before?
