GooglePlusGoogle has introduced a new social network-type widget to its search engine called Google Plus. When you search on Google you will see a little Google Plus icon next to every search result. Once you find a result that is relevant and that you like, you can click on the Google Plus icon. This tells Google that the website is relevant to the search term used to find the website.

It is more than just an icon by a search result, Google plans to use this tool to compete with Facebook. The search engine giant mentioned that Google Plus will eventually influence the search engine results. We already see people selling Google Pluses in various forums for quite a high price. However, it is currently in Beta mode.
