Google+ introduces Share button


Following the footsteps of the social networking behemoth Facebook, Google’s own Google+ is launching their own version of the share button.

The company unveiled their new tools for their subscribers namely the Share button and their Cloud service Google Drive.

This new red and white button enables Web developers to help Google+ spread their content on their own social network.

According to Google+ Product Manager Rick Borovoy, “When visitors come across something interesting on your site, sometimes you want to encourage a simple endorsement (like +1). Other times, however, you want to help visitors share with their friends, right away. Today’s new Google+ Share button lets you do just that.”

If we base it on the popularity of Facebook’s popular buttons, like the share button, it would be a big boost to this up and coming social network.

As members begin piling up for the infant Google+, this Share button will help disseminate information, may it be valuable or pathetic, to other users.

Once an item is shared, the Share button’s colors will turn from red to white. It joins the Google +1 button that enables members to show approval or dissent to a post.
