+1 Google Chrome Extension Leaked on National TV
Yesterday I mentioned that Google released a campaign with a series of TV advertisements that promoted their web browser, Chrome. Well I have just finished watching one of them and I have to say it is brilliant. Like, as brilliant as some of those touching McDonalds commercials (sorry for promoting, I am a huge fan of McDonalds commercials. I’d go sit in front of the TV for them).
The one I watched was Dear Sophie. It’s about a Dad sending emails to his daughter – emails about how she is growing up. I almost shed a tear. But I didn’t watch it out of my own curiosity… I watched it because people are saying that through the video, Google leaked themselves on national television about their +1 Chrome extension.
And true enough, if you reach 51 seconds into the video you will see the +1 button just beside the Picasa button that is being clicked on.
So what is this +1 button? Rumors said that it is comparable to the “Like” button on Facebook. A month ago, it was officially launched as a way to share Google Search results that you like with your friends and the web in general. For further info on the +1 extension, click here.
For now just sit back, relax, and get all giggly when you see the +1 icon on the video below:
