Google+ launches share button

Google integrates a new share tool into their social network.

In an attempt to assist with a supposed “content drought”, Google+ has added a new ‘share’ button to their social networking platform.

The embeddable button allows users to share webpages and posts to the Google+ news feed, along with an optional comment.

The success of this addition relies on Google’s incentive to prove that the button will generate page views for websites.

After reportedly failing to make an impact with previous attempts at content sharing buttons – as well as the competition the social network faces in the area – it’s asserted that Google+ might struggle to familiarise its user base with the add-on.

No current launch partners or live examples are currently in use.
