Google yesterday launched +1 Extension for Chrome Browsers. This may be a small extension but the wide range application and the overall effect of it on Google is very substantial.
What is this +1 Extension ?:
Well you must have gone through various websites and blogs and have seen a +1 button where you can +1 any website or any other thing on the web. With this website you will have the +1 Button integrated to the Google Chrome Browser and you can +1 any button on the internet no matter if the website is having the +1 button or not. Basically it brings the +1 functionality to the entire web.
How Does It Work ? :
With this extension on, there wont be any need for the website to have the +1 Button. You can share the content you like. You can also keep the +1 Public or Private as you wish. This one is just like a browser by Facebook with the Like button integrated to it. Sounds cool , doesnt it .
There are certain issues which may bother you. The extension will store and forward all the URL’s you have visited to Google in order to retrieve the +1 data. Also your Tab activity and almost everything you do will be stored and forwarded to Google.
The data forwarded by this extension will help Google to refine its searches and make the data linking in Google much more social. This will affect how data will appear after search and also how Google serves Advertising to you. So this is surely one of the most significant releases Google has made recently.
