LulzImg v2 - Hosting your images for teh lulz!


Google Inc. have rolled out it's “+1” button for websites, allowing users to recommend things to their contacts and friends.

Sites that you've “+1” will appear more prominently in your friends’ search result (implying you have friends), provided that your pals have +1 enabled and are have login to their Google accounts.

The button already is available on sites like Mashable and the Huffington Post.

Google’s +1, however, is a little different. Instead of focusing on a separate social network like Facebook's "Like" button that is everywhere in the internet, it is geared toward search, which is the thing Google does best (and adSense). Because Page Rank is crucial to websites, webmasters might will have more of an incentive to include the +1 button.

The Twitter “follow” button, on the other hand, is a service to get more novice interweb users to be sucked into Twitter. If website readers see that they can use Twitter to get more information from their favorite actors, they might be more likely to get on board the Tw@ter.

I like the +1 idea, but this is probably another step along the road to Digg being obsolete.

I've been seeing these buttons everywhere. I have a twitter account but I don't use it and don't see the point of it too much. For companies it is great for advertising though

Another gimmick, tho I guess those who get on the ship first will gain some ground in the search results.
