We’ve covered Google+ in the past, as it’s the fastest growing social network to date. Yesterday, Google shared some numbers about the Google 1+ button that rolled out in June and just a month later hit 2 billion daily page views. Today, the +1 button appears on more than a million sites, with over 4 billion daily views, which is pretty significant momentum.

It’s important to note that yesterday Google rolled out a couple of changes to the +1 button that include:

Sharing with your circles on Google+
This means now the +1 button can share things directly to your circles.

+Snippets
These are the links and briefs that currently get pulled in while posting on Google+; now the buttons can do the same.

These were similar to the suggested updates that I made previously to improve the overall cohesiveness of the product. Don’t forget to add us to your Google+ circles.
