Google Goes Social -Will We Like +1?

Google has jumped further into the Social Currency scene with the limited US launch of the +1 rating tool for its search engine.  Despite the limited release, it is possible for us interested folk in the UK to participate in this beta stage, by going to Google’s Experimental Labs where it is possible to join the experiment from one of your Google accounts and get early access to the new tool.

It is very likely that this tool will be the precursor to Google going beyond its previous “social layers” in tools like Google Buzz, into a wholesale assault on Facebook’s turf.  Once the plus one tool is active, the Big G will be using that data to tweak its plans for the next big social network.

This short video shows some of the details of the tool and how to join, courtesy of Search Engine Land.
