Google Launches +1 to Rival Facebook’s Like Button

Written by Lee Micai on April 1, 2011 – 12:07 pm -

On Wednesday, Google released +1, a button, much like the Facebook Like button, that can be added to content pages. Users who click the +1 button are giving that content a direct recommendation to Google.

+1 is currently being rolled out as an experiment and you need to “Join this Experiment” with Google to have access to it.

In order to use +1 you will have to be logged in to your Google account. Once a your logged in simply click the +1 button next to a search engine result, Google will keep track of the +1 and highlight that search result if it appears for any of your friends.
