If lately you’ve had the curiosity of visiting our web sites you probably noticed something new, namely, the Google +1 button.
For those who are not familiarized with this app, the Google +1 button represents the means through which, publicly, you rank certain web sites, products or articles on the web as interesting or worth visiting. Thus, you can receive recommendations from your friends or you can send them yours. The necessary condition is, for you to have an e-mail address at Gmail and all of your friends in your address book.
Working mainly on the same principle as Facebooks „Like” button, Google +1 button helps your friends find easyer, in the large sea of results, those that are worth taken into account, and this works both ways.
Nick Radicevic, Google Product Manager, said on Google’s AdSense Blog: „Today, +1’s will start appearing on Google search pages globally. We’ll be starting off with sites like google.co.uk, google.de, google.jp and google.fr, then expanding quickly to most other Google search sites soon after.”
