Have you seen the new feature Google is introducing? +1. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s just a simple way to Like Google search results to share with your friends and connections.
Once you activate, whenever you’re signed into your Google account, your search results will have a +1 icon next to it. It works like Diggs in Digg and Likes on Facebook. If you find the search result useful or just enjoy the linked site, you hit the +1 icon. Google says by +1-ing a result you’re giving it a recommendation, a stamp of approval. More +1’s on a result means the site is more interesting.
Right now your +1 social network is limited to people in your gmail or google talk chat list, your “My Contacts” group in Google Contacts and people who follow in Google Reader or Google Buzz but Google says connecting via non-Google services like Twitter will be coming in the future. The feature will also be available on websites in the future as well.
