I have been recently looking for a way to promote my newly established company and the topic I want to touch here concerns the social networking. I know the importance of Facebook as well as Twitter and their (respectively) Like and Follow buttons. However, I have recently spotted the new button which started to appear everywhere, the Google +1 Button, which is something new for me. Is it to do something with a new Social Network built by Google, aka Facebook and Twitter? And more interestingly, how important is to have that button on your website and how important is it to join the Google+ to promote the business? Any thoughts?
That is basically Google's response to Facebook. It hasn't taken off nearly as well as many projected but, it is a nice social media addition. You can setup a page for your business or interest just like Facebook and plays nicely with photos and images.
There's Google+ and there the +1 button.
Google + is Google's "facebook".
The +1 button works as the facebook "like", but i think that it has an advantage, i think that the +1 button helps you go up on the google searches rating... Do a couple searches on google, you'll see that some results may have "mr X +1'ed this".
