Google Plus – +1 Button and Google+ Badge Updates

Google released its +1 Button (pronounced plus one) to the whole web on June 1, 2011.

The +1 button let people who love your content recommend it initially on Google search, and later on allowed them to share your content on Google+.

Google unveiled Google+ Badge to all users on all sites on November 16, 2011.

The Google+ badge is a customizable widget that helps you connect your site to a Google+ page. Featuring both an add to circle and a +1 button, the Google+ badge makes it simple for your users to add your Google+ business page to their Google+ circles and +1 your page, all without leaving your site.

Google+ brought about two subtle updates to +1 button sharing flow, and Google+ badge to use a Follow button in developer preview today.

As I have a preview account, I received this email from Google+ Platform Preview:

+1 Button Update

The Google+ Platform team mentioned in their email:

First, we’re updating the +1 button sharing flow. Your users have been able to share from the +1 button for about six months. However, the sharing flow has required a second click to open the sharing box.

When you click to +1 today from your preview account, the sharing box will display automatically, giving you the ability to share right away.
