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.
