    Do people actually use that +1 thing? I’ve never seen it on anyone’s blog, let alone people actually voting up a post with it. I guess I’ll try it…

    It is new so not too many have heard about it yet i guess but it will prob become as pop as diggdigg (maybe) I am goint to wait until it is inclded in DD so to not have it alone as seperate plugin. If not added in a month or so I may add by itself. I do think it may help by what I have read about it.

    I highly doubt it. Virtually everything Google tried to get into lately was a major failure. Knol or Buzz immediately come to mind. Don’t expect the +1 to actually get anywhere or mean anything.

  4. Paul says:

    Google fails to understand that pressing such a button is a small instance of personal expression. Facebook makes this very clear with the thumbs-up “like” button. Google’s +1, however, seems to speak the language of code, not the language of your average human. It’s an “increment button” … yay. Just what I want/need?!
