03 Jun 2011 Gluttons for Buttons: Google, Twitter, LinkedIn launch new tools

Google’s +1 launched Wednesday, challenging the Facebook like. What makes the +1 special is its integration with search results, with which publishers can hope to see higher traffic numbers as they gain +’s. The only question now is: are pages without a plus therefore “nonplussed”?
