Google +1 Is Here

I love when Google shakes things up the moment you feel comfy with a new concept or strategy.

Google just launched their new +1 service which makes search results "sharable" with your Google Chat network. You're already familiar with Facebook's Like feature and Twitter's Tweet button on thrid party sites. Now, get ready to have the ability to share search results. Very interesting.

Here's an example of how +1 will appear next to the results:

Keep your eye on this - an interesting development as search and social activities take another step closer in building their connections with each other.

This could definitely be a game changer! Going to be interesting to say the least.

I'm sure Google has much bigger plans & this only an early version of their search+social sharing efforts, but I'm curious about people using this to place ads & spam them out...

So true David - I often think that the level Google is operating at, they see things differently than most of us. I've even joked that they set us up with their products to see how we respond, knowing very well how it'll play out. I'll be watching this product for sure.
