Google +1 or Facebook “Like” Button?

What is Google’s new +1 feature that we are beginning to see?  Take a quick look at Google’s explanation in the video below and then read on.

Does the Google’s +1 look familiar?  It is just like the Facebook “Like” button in my opinion.

Google is attempting to connect people that like the same things socially.  By it being launched in their search engine as well as on individual websites, it has the potential to be even bigger than the “Like” button.

Unfortunately in the past Google has failed to produce something themselves that grows virally; an example is the failure of Google Buzz compared to the success of Facebook and Twitter.

That is probably why they prefer to acquire other companies that show promise.  Unfortunately for them they just don’t do well with social media.  Just look at what happened after they acquired MySpace.  It has pretty much gone from a social site to surviving on music alone.

What impact do you see Google’s new +1 feature having on the internet?  Leave a comment and share your thoughts.
