Google's "+1" is the New Facebook "Like"
Mar 30, 2011, 1:40 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Google today announced a new social networking component that it plans to add to its core search product starting today. Google will allow searchers to click on a "+1" button next to search results, which, in effect, endorses them and acts the same way that Facebook's "Like" button works on web sites. Google said that, to start, the +1 tool will not be used to modify search rankings, though the data will be analyzed and applied in the future as Google deems fit. Searchers will also be able to add a +1 to advertisements that are displayed with results. In order to use this new feature, users must have a Google Profile page. Items that are checked with the +1 will appear in users' public Google profiles. Google said it will eventually allow third-party sites to add the +1 feature the same way Facebook has allowed other sites to add Like. The mobile component of the +1 system isn't yet clear. The feature will be available to a limited number of users at first and expanded to more over time.
