Google’s New “Like” Button: +1

By now we’re all familiar with FaceBook’s “like” button.  You click this button when you like certain content and it goes out to your friends to tell them to check it out too.  This has expanded to even being able to put the thumbs up “like” icon on your website and blog posts.

Google is now following suite with it’s new +1 campaign.  +1 is the digital equivalent to telling your friends “Hey this is cool, check it out!”.   You’ll now be seeing this new icon next to your results when you do a Google search so be looking of it.

I‘m sure as this develops their will be other applications just like FaceBook to put this on your website or blog as well.  Soon it will be just as familiar and the FaceBook thumb even though, in my opinion, not as cool!  :cry:

If you’re like me you probably haven’t paid too much attention to your Google profile & Place page.  Just like FaceBook who draws information from your personal profile, you’ll need to have a Google profile for you to +1 your friends, assuming you have some! :)

You’ll also be able to edit your recommendations from your profile page in Google; delete etc. So go set on up if you haven’t or update yours if you haven’t visited it for awhile.  While you’re there, don’t forget to connect to your friends just like you do on FaceBook.

Because we all use Google search so much this could have some relevance but have a hard time believing it will have the impact for Google to compete with FaceBook as a Social Site that they hope it will.  Only time will tell. Go check out Google’s +1 info and decide for yourself.

Opening the doors to your Social Media Success!

 

 

Plugins: I don’t have a +1 yet but I do have a “like” thumb so please click it NOW!  Thanx
