Will Google+ save +1?

Today Google announced that they are filling the gap between Google +1 and Google+. Users will finally be able to share the content they +1’ed with their Circles.

It is noteworthy that in the announcement Google proudly mentions the number of times the +1 button appeared on web sites (about 2 billion) but does not say a word about how many times it was actually clicked. I suspect they are too embarrassed to tell.

So now that Google realized the nonsense about the +1 and made the button actually useful, it remains to be seen how much of an effect this update will have in its usage. I will be watching it closely and blog about it if necessary.

Oh by the way…before I forget….I told you so…:-)
