Google Launches +1

Today Google has made +1 available as a search experiment and will start publicly rolling it out soon according to their blog. After joining the experiment you can start clicking on the +1 icon next to search results. Your Google Profile will be updated to include a new tab that is private by default (you can make it public if you choose). Your social circle (through connected accounts) will be able to see the items you +1'ed in their search results.

Soon we will see the Google +1 button embedded next to the Facebook Like and Twitter Tweet buttons on every webpage. It seems Google is now making slow smaller moves towards becoming much more social instead of launching one product at a major press event. All these new features will combine into something great.
