Google+ Gets a Share Button


If you’re a fan of the Google+ social network, you may have noticed a new button on some your favorite websites. The button that allows people to +1 posts on websites all around the Internet has been around for a long time. However, there was no easy way to actually share story with other friends using Google+.

That has changed with the introduction of the G+ Share button this week. This button reminds me a lot of a similar feature from Facebook where when you go to a story and you can see people in your circles that have shared the story. Then, you can click the button to share the story yourself.

The button is white before the user shares a story, and turns red after the story is shared. I think actually sharing the story is much better than simply indicating that you like it.
