Google+ is already being enhanced

Published on 26th August 2011

So what’s new… There are 2 new features being released in the next week or so. Sharing a Google+ link in your Circles and +Snippets.

Google+When you click on a Google+ icon to like a site you will now have the option to share this with your friends on Google. You can define exactly who you share your recommendation with by choosing a Circle or Circles at the point you recommend the site. The recommendation also gets posted directly to your stream on Google+.

+Snippets is the ability for publishers to share a bit more information in a +1 share including a title/web link, an image, and a short description. As a publisher we can define what this snippet looks like by adding code to your page. To get more information on this please see the Google Webmaster blog post here.

If you’d like to learn more about these enhancements you can see more information including a short video here.

As I have previous said I think Google+ is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the not too distant future, and the fact Google are adding features just a few weeks after the initial launch shows they are very serious about making this work.

If you are not on Google+ yet and need an invite to join please drop me an email at alan.tomkins@wsiwbm.co.uk and I’ll get one over to you.
