+1 Buttons updated, now actually useful

| 11 Comments

Remember the Google +1 button introduced a while back? The button allowed Google Users to recommend a web site in search results, but little can be done to share the web page with friends using the button.

Fortunately, Google just improved it by adding a few goodies and improvements to it. First off, much like Facebook’s old Share button, content can be posted to your Stream as +Snippets for your followers to see. The content that gets shared can be customized by the webmaster using the schema.org attributes as detailed on Google’s blog.

These two additions are great for users and webmasters, as it allows users to promote websites much easier and more effectively. The two features are still being lowing rolled out and will be available to all in the following weeks or so.
