Google announces +1 Button in a challenge to Facebook's Like Button

Google is taking on Facebook's Like Button with a button of its own, the +1 Button.

"Our goal at Google is to get you the most relevant results as quickly as possible," Rob Spiro, a Google product manager, wrote in a blog post Wednesday. "But relevance is about relationships as well as words on webpages. That's why we recently started to include more information from people you know -- stuff they've shared on Twitter, Flickr and other sites -- in Google search results.

"Today we're taking that a step further, enabling you to share recommendations with the world right in Google's search results."
