Personal Results will enable people to find information shared with them on Google+, while Profiles in Search will allow users to “immediately” find people they’re close to or might be interested in following.

The third tool, People and Pages, will help users find specific personal profiles and Google+ pages related to specific topics or areas of interest.

The features are all part of a service called Search, plus Your World, which will display more content for users who are logged into Google.
