Google +1 is here. And it’s simply Facebook’s Like button. I wish it wasn’t that simple. But, that’s what it is. And it’s a huge testament to Facebook discovering the golden egg. Because Google has had time to think about this and re-think about this. But they came up with +1. Which is essentially the exact same product.
The only difference? Well, Google +1 lives outside of Facebook of course. It’s primarily designed to make your search results better. If your friend has +1’d a page that comes up in your search results, you’ll probably try there first.
Of course, Bing already offers this with your friend’s “like’d” pages.
This Google +1 feature will slowly roll out over the next few months on ads and sites as well.
