Google introduces +1 recommendation engine

So are you used the Facebook Like Button yet? Do you use it all? I try to stay away from it as much as possible, because I don’t want that company’s feed or product crap in my news feed on Facebook, but there are a few select. Well it seems that earlier this week, Google wanted to get in in on the action. There’s isn’t so much just a product placement thing, but more of a recommendation engine, powered by your friends and colleagues. This new idea is called Google +1. The idea is that you can click on something to +1 it, and it shows up in your friend’s search results next time they might be searching for something that you have searched for previously. It is the same basic idea that the Like button is on Facebook, but as of yet, isn’t as intrusive in your personal stuff. This will help you in future purchases, research or just about anything Google has their finger in. So I say, go give it a try and see if you like it.
