Web Search, Web Content? - Get '+1'

Location: Newcastle, NSW. Australia. Newcastle NSW, Australia

Apparently, according to Blogger Buzz, it's 'cool' to use digital shorthand, and apparently, +1 translates as "this is pretty cool", or, is that supposed to be "kewl"? Crazy, man! IMHO! - haha.

When +1 was launched, in March, it was described; " a way to help share web content and make search more personal and relevant...".

"...In order to +1 things, you first need a public Google profile. When you create a profile, it's visible to anyone and connections with your email address can easily find it. Your +1’s are stored in a new tab on your Google profile. You can show your +1’s tab to the world, or keep it private and just use it to personally manage the ever-expanding record of things you love around the web..." 1

This new feature, added to the "Show Share Buttons" feature, is extremely easy to add. All you have to do is check the box in the Main Post Page Element ...

So, what happens now? Well, your readers, who like that particular post, or wish to suggest someone else read it too, click on the +1 button. They would then confirm that this is what they want to do, and that the details are correct, and that's it...

The "Learn more" button takes you here ...

The Privacy Center for +1, is worth the look, too ...

Learn more about +1 in Help Articles, and also, learn how to personalise it.
