Wow this is some exciting news coming from Google. They have recently introduced the new “like” button called the +1. Basically this button will sit in search results and when you hit that little +1 button it will let your friends know that you just thought that specific search result had something of importance. Google has been making a large push lately to bring a much stronger social aspect to their experience and technology and this is just another one of those attempts. Will it fail? will it succeed? who knows Google has made many attempts over the last few years which have crashed and burned so who knows. Right now you have to opt into the program but it could eventually be something we see everywhere.
