Google imitates Facebook Like button with +1 button


Google’s new “+1 button” looks like a version of the Facebook Like button.  They announced it back in March, but I have just started seeing it appear in my Google search results today.

Is this Google finally starting to make the most of their massive customer database to kick start their own social network?

+1 doesn’t have the same ring to it as Like.

Here’s Google’s marketing video about it, plus they have a whole stack of other Google +1 button information.
