Google +1 Button Official Chrome Extension & Directly +1 to Google+

Google +1 Button Official Chrome Extension

Today’s featured browser extension is Google +1 Button, an official extension (finally) by Google.

Google +1 Button Chrome Extension

This official extension gives you an easy way to +1 a web page you like.  Even if the web site does not have a +1 button installed, you can simply click this extension’s icon to toggle +1 or -1 (remove your +1 of this web site).  All +1’s are recorded by Google.  The total number of +1’s made by users all over the world is shown on the extension’s icon, so you know how popular the web site is.  You can choose to make your +1’s visible to public or private by adjusting in your Google Profile.

So how can you use it?  Well, you can create a bookmark collection which is synced to the cloud by marking +1 to sites you want to keep for future reading.  You can also share with your friends awesome stuff you found (which should be the original purpose of Google +1).

Directly Post to Google+

Another recent invention by Google is to possibility to directly share a web site to Google+ via the +1 button on web sites.  From now on if you click on the standard +1 button, you can choose to post it to Google+ and write your remarks.  A new post would be made in your Google+ stream.

Unfortunately, the official Google +1 button introduced above does not have this function.  It’s kind of strange…

  • We have to have a different perception to find out why you have our stuckness.
    Many women pick the ankle initially due to the fact that the location can easily
    be shown or covered. Many people recommend developing a
    hummingbird tattoo around the shoulder since it would look much like the bird is
    perching on you.
