The +1 button is now a very familiar sight on many sites around the web, and although the Plus 1 social network is yet to take off the button still roams free, the reason for this is because by pressing the plus one button readers will basically be adding that page or site to their favorites on the whole of Google, meaning that in search results sites they have before +1’d will show up higher than they normally would.

The button has now had some work done to it allow recommendations to show recommended content for them to view on the same site, up to now the button has been in testing but now it has been launched for all the world to see, check it out by hovering and maybe clicking that +1 button below, and maybe some more 🙂
