Google to Rival Facebook “Like Button”
If you follow social media news, or the Google blog, I’m sure you may have heard about the new Google “Like button” called “+1”. Although Google claims it is not building a social network their actions in the recent past say otherwise. With purchases of Slide.com, Jambool, Like.com, Angstro, Social Deck, it looks like Google has something up their sleeve. With approximately 90% of the web search share and at least 146 million Gmail users I think we can all be sure that Google has a shot; however they can’t just challenge the social media giant Facebook. I can’t say that Google is building a social network, or that they would succeed, but they are moving in the right direction with the “+1”.
The “+1” will give many sites on the web a chance to prove popularity and relevance with a “Like Button-esque” feature built right into the most used search engine on the planet. Facebook recently improved the Like button possibly in preparation for the “+1” let us know what you think of the “+1”. I am going to have to say with the backing of the most popular search engine, “I’m voting the “+1″ will be a great success.”. In the near future you may find yourself saying “Google my site” and if you like what you see “+1 me”.
