Sobees, the company known for their desktop and web-based social media tools, has just launched a new real-time search platform powered by Silverlight and running on Windows Azure. The new platform lets you search the real-time web including images, news, and videos. It pulls from sites like Twitter, FriendFeed, OneRiot, Bing, YouTube, Google, Yahoo, Flickr, and the New York Times.
Its columnar based interface lets you customize which services are displayed while trending topics appear at the top for one-click access. Also at the top is a search box that lets search across the services for the topic of your choosing.
International users will appreciate the service’s drop-down box that lets you choose from a number of languages. For added fun, you can also share the results of your search on Facebook or Twitter using the buttons provided.
This new search engine is a free, web-based application available now from search.sobees.com.
