Google Announces New Voting Widget

In a move designed to make Google more social, the search giant recently added a voting widget to both its search results and third-party websites. Called Google Plus One, it allows those signed into their Google accounts to vote their approval of web pages. Pages you vote for will display in your Google account profile, unless you choose to make them private. For pictures and a more detailed explanation, read Leo Notenboom’s What’s that “+1″ Thing?.
