Use +1 to give something your public stamp of approval, so friends, contacts, and others can find the best stuff when they search. Get recommendations for the things that interest you, right when you want them, in your search results.

To participate in this experiment:

  1. Make sure you’re signed into your Google Account (required)
  2. Click ‘Join this experiment’
  3. Search for something you love on Google.com
  4. Click the new +1 button, and make your mark on the web

Your +1’s are public. They can appear in Google search results, on ads, and sites across the web. You’ll always be able to see your own +1’s in a new tab on your Google Profile, and if you want, you can share this tab with the world.

The rumour mill have long suggested Google was working on its own social network to rival Facebook, which the gossips pitched as GoogleMe. Then the chatter suggested it would become something less encompassing, a social layer for existing Google feautures called +1.

Well they were right and it’s now here. Click the link above to add it to your search results and to find out more.

I’ve just activated it myself and I’ll be playing with it over the next few days. If you do the same come and let us know what you think!
