Google +1 Button Let's You Publish To Google +

Yesterday Google announced they have enhanced the Google +1 Button to allow users of Google +, the social network, to publish directly from the +1 button to Google +.

Here is how it works, on this site, you see the Google +1 button and you click it and it opens up an expanded option to add your comments and share it with your circles on Google +:

Google +1 button sharing on Google +

Then if you see on my Google + profile, the Google+ post shows up right in Google +.

Google + Post

This will save me a ton of time +1'ing my stuff and then posting them to Google + so all my Google + "followers" can be inundated with all my wonderful content on a daily basis.

FYI, Facebook share works pretty much the same way.

Google also added + Snippets within their rich snippets schema to allow publishers to make sure the +1 shares work as best as possible. More on that on the Google Webmaster Blog.

And here is the famous Timothy from Google:

A good development. Let's hope Google keep bringing out more as so far google+ isn't working for me.

It doesn't work for me. Your button still works the way the old +1 button worked. Do I have to adjust some setting in Google Plus?

They turn it on per user, not per site.

I guess I'm at the bottom of their priority list - It doesn't work yet for me either...
