Google +1 – The Social Voting System
Google+1 – Google Plus
Google +1 is the social voting system newly introduced and works in tandem with Google Plus which is Google’s new social network system. The naming of the button versus the social network can be a little confusing at first but soon becomes second nature when you work with it.
Google +1 - A Time Saver
The Google +1 button allows you to communicate a message to your friends with just one push of the button instead of needing to text them or send an email you accomplish the transfer of the information you wanted them to see with just one click of the Google +1 button.
Google +1 A Senario
You are arranging a dinner party for your classmates that you haven’t been in touch with for 10 years. You knew them well in high school but 10 years is a long time and peoples likes and dislikes could have change drastically in that time period. What restaurant should you choose to please the majority?
You go online to check out your local restaurants and find 2 places that in your opinion appear to be perfect that have a Goggle +1 button on their website.
Instead of having to email all your former classmates you create a circle for them on your Google Plus account and click the Google+1 button on these 2 websites and Google will ask you which circle to share so you choose only the circle called Former Classmates Dinner Club. You have just shared all this information with them without looking up their email addresses, or creating HTML links to these websites or typing a single line of text.
This is a quick and easy method to get this information to only one specific group of people. Unlike Facebook where you are sharing with everyone on Google Plus you can share with only this one Google circle. If you would not choose a circle all your contacts will get your Google +1 message.
You will find thousands and thousand of website which are already applying the Google +1 button.
