Google have released a cool little feature for use of their social network Plus. It should make it easier for pages to get discovered and circled.
A website will have to link its Plus Page and then when an opted in use visits a site that has authenticated the Plus page a small marker will appear at the side of the screen allowing the visitors to Circle the page.
Best we can tell this is part of the latest public build of Google Chrome a very interesting development.
Enhance your Google+ stream by following the Google+ pages that you find interesting:
- When you visit a site connected to a Google+ page, a slider will appear on the side of the browser window. Hover over the slider to expand it and easily add the page to your circles.
- The notifications button in your browser will be badged with a “+” to indicate when you’re viewing a site connected with a Google+ page. Clicking on the button shows your notifications just like it did before but now it will also display the related Google+ page information and provide a quick way to start following it.
Whenever a Google+ page is in your circles, all of the posts from that page will start appearing in your stream.
This isn’t the usual yada yada: The URLs of the sites you visit will be sent to Google in order to identify the Google+ profiles and pages linked to those URLs.
