+1 button—plus one this!

Posted: June 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

Came across the recently launched +1 button from Google. When I heard about it for the first time, I thought it was probably similar to Digg adding to bookmark count on items. Later on figured out it’s similar to recommendations on a certain element someone likes on the web.

Couple of thoughts. “+1” sounds geeky. Not that I don’t like geeky stuffs, but why will you build a new product for all cyber-sapiens(all who use the web) , but give it a name that looks geared towards a specific class?

To anyone on the web, “recommend” or “like” is no-brainer, better pick a term that’s more known.

I remember several years back I had come across 2 advertisements in the same product line (beautiful and high end servers that don’t necessarily have to be huge) :

First one : Dinosaurs are not built for data centers

Second one: Presenting XYZ server: small elegant, and a high performance engine

I “plus one” the second.
