Google +1 Goes Global
June 28, 2011 | Google +1
Google's +1 button, the search giant's challenger to the Facebook Like button, is making its worldwide debut. "Today, +1's will start appearing on Google search pages globally," Google Product Manager Nick Radicevic announced on Google's AdSense blog. "We'll be starting off with sites like google.co.uk, google.de, google.jp and google.fr, then expanding quickly to most other Google search sites soon after." In addition to an international rollout on search result pages, Google is expanding its rollout of the +1 button on websites across the world. The company announced partnerships with several publications, including The Telegraph, The Independent, Last.fm, SnapDeal, and El Pais.
