Google Feature – Share Box on Home Page

The Google bar that spans across Google products updated its look on November 29, 2011.

The new gray bar contained links to your services in a drop-down menu on the left, and a share box on the right. Later on, the drop-down menu was replaced by the old horizontal black bar.

Welcome to the new way to navigate Google

Google had introduced the new bar with plenty of flexibility for the future. We expected more changes in future.

Share Box
The share box enables you to share to your circles on Google+, no matter what Google product you are using. You will see a Share button across all products, such as Google Maps, Google News, Gmail, Google Docs and Google Reader. YouTube seems the only exception to sharing. Clicking on the share button opens a box for adding updates to your Google+ account. Just write in the share box, select the circles you would like to share with, and post. The icons at the bottom of the box can be used to add photos, videos, links, or share your location.

Search and Share from Google Home Page

Until now, Google’s home page has never allowed you to directly do anything other than search. For the first time ever Google Home Page itself gets the Share Box for Google+ sharing. Google has added a share button in the top right corner of its search page.

The share button also appears on the search results page.

The update is rolling out to all users in the coming weeks. This will encourage global users to join Google+ and also to share immediately as they come across something in a search.

Social Media consists of media that support and encourage social interaction among users. For instance, online discussion forums are designed to allow people to post messages and for other users to respond in kind.
While there may be social aspects to any medium (e.g. links to share an article by email), social media typically refers to those media whose major functions are oriented toward sharing of information, and consequently most of the information on such media are generated by users. Common examples of social media sites are Twitter and Facebook.
Social media marketing is the process of promoting your site or business through social media channels.
