Google Plus – Google+ Badges

On November 9, 2011, Google officially unveiled Google+ badge by making it available to their Google+ platform preview group. The Google+ badge is a customizable widget that helps you connect your site to a Google+ page.

Google announced on Google+ Platform Blog on November 9, 2011:

And on November 16, 2011, the Google+ badge was out of preview and available to all users on all sites. 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.

The Google+ badge also qualify you for Google+ Direct Connect, which lets people type +yourPage on Google search and automatically start following your page.

If you have linked your Google+ page to your site, the number of people who have +1d your page should soon begin to reflect all the +1s that your site has earned, not just the number of people subscribed to your page.

But there may be a delay before the count shown on the badge includes +1s from across your brand. During this delay, the badge will show the count of +1s from your Google+ page. (My badge as of today shows only the count of +1s from my Google+ page.)

Link Google+ Page to Site

Linking your Google+ business page to your site is very easy. Use the Google+ badge configuration tool to generate the exact code for adding a Google+ badge to your site. The Google+ badge is available in different styles to accomodate your site’s needs.

Then choose your style and preview. You may choose a badge (with +1 button ) or a small badge (without +1 button). With either badge, people can subscribe to your Google+ page without having to leave your site. However, you may also chhose a static badge.

Lastly, customize your badge, and get the code to copy and paste into your site.

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.
