Google Plus One: A month after first public login, now more popular than Twitter?
Google Plus One button quickly becoming popular, now more popular than Twitter’s official share button.
After launching the Google Plus (Google+) social networking site last week and received tons of positive reviews, Google gets another piece of good news, and this time, the month old Google Plus button is quickly becoming popular on the internet world.
According to a report noted by Vator News citing a report from a research firm named BrightEnd, Google’s Plus One button is beating out both the Twitter share button and Twitter’s instant follow button even combined. The numbers are based on the number of embeds in websites across the internet.
But we need to correct the report’s error. Google Plus button was not launched alongside the Google Plus social networking site. Actually, the Google Plus button embed code was launched June 1st, and not June 28th, so the Google button is now a month old and not 11 days old that multiple reports are claiming. You can read my report about Google Plus One’s public embed code launch HERE.
When I first reported the Google Plus button last month, I asked my readers if “Google Plus button can survive” the ecosystem, knowing that Twitter and Facebook were unstoppable last month (apparently, without the Google Plus social networking site).
According to Google’s statement about Google Plus One button, you can only “+1″ an internet article or video if you’re registered on their public Google profile. Google added, “this helps people see who recommended that tasty recipe or great campsite. When you create a profile, it’s visible to anyone and connections with your email address can easily find it.”
Today, Google Plus One button is the newest way to bookmark articles especially if you’re already a member of Google+ social networking site. For example, if you love one article here in Pop Herald, you can just push the Plus One button, and read it again by accessing your Google Plus profile and clicking the “+1″ tab.
Looks like Google tricked me there, I never thought they’re already cooking something big, a very polished and very snappy Google Plus site that works alongside this snappy button.
