Former Googler and the mind behind Facebook Disconnect, Brian Kennish and security researcher Ashkan Soltani have come up with something interesting -the 'Like +1' button. This button, as the name suggests, is a hybrid both the Facebook like and Google's +1 allowing users to consolidate both the social clicks in one.
The click on Like+1 will let you display your likes on the Facebook profile and adding to Google profile at the same as well. You can see your +1s at the https://profiles.google.com/u/0/ (u-username, 0- plusones). You can there also notice all the Facebook likes being exported to +1s with this new plugin. The hybrid button other than helping users on less clicks, saves the like+1 information locally. This can help in exporting the independent Facebook records of the liking anytime in the future.
With development of several social platforms, for a website the space which the plugins as Like, +1, tweet etc. takes makes it feel crowded. There the new Like+1 button will really be helpful. Saving space of the two buttons in one can let the space look little less crowded.
Like+1 is not affiliated with Google or Facebook. The button is compatible with latest browsers and plugins are available for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and IE9 (courtesy of WebMynd, which provides add-ons running on multiple browser platforms). Once installed, you will notice the earlier like button and +1 getting replaced by a single Like+1 button.
