Reports: Google to launch +1 for sites tomorrow | Digital Media - CNET News

tbd if +1 will be broadly liked

The new +1 feature, first reported by TechCrunch and confirmed by Search Engine Land, will give sites the ability to add the +1 icon to their pages. What's unclear is how those clicks will show up for others. When a Facebook user "likes" a Web page, it can be seen by all their friends on Facebook, and now on some search queries in Microsoft's Bing. But Google has no similar social network, so it remains to be seen how a person's clicking +1 will show up to other users.

"Tomorrow we'll be talking about how the +1 button will further help people find and recommend great content across the Web," Google spokesman Jim Prosser wrote in an e-mail. "We'll have more details with our announcement."
