New Features of Google Plus One
GOOGLE released the “+1” button in June. This button is on over one Million sites, and currently has over four million daily views. Now the folks over at Google is doing much more with that simple “+1” button.
The first of the two new additions to the “+1” button is the ability to share with your circles. Sometimes you want to share something with certain groups of friends. So beginning today, they are making it easy for Google+ users to share webpages with their circles, directly from the +1 button. All you have to do is +1 a page as usual, and look for the new “Share on Google+” option. From there you can comment, and choose a circle and share.
The second of the two features is called “+Snippets”. When you share content from the +1 button, you’ll notice that a link is automatically included with some other stuff in the share box. It is called “+snippets”.
Of course: publishers can benefit from +snippets as well. With just a few changes to their webpages, publishers can actually customize their +snippets and encourage more sharing of their content on Google+. More details about this are available on the Google Webmaster blog.
