Google Socializes Search Results With +1: “Plus one” is digital shorthand for “this is pretty cool” and it’s Google’s version of the Facebook Like button. “To recommend something, all you have to do is click +1 on a webpage or ad you find useful. These +1’s will then start appearing in Google’s search results.” To try out this new feature, you need to have a Google profile and visit the Google Labs site to opt in to the +1 program.
