getButterfly Logo getButterfly code wrangling since 2005

It’s been a while since Google launched Google+ and the accompanying Share button was nowhere to be seen. A similar function was handled by the +1 button, but it felt like something was missing. Every other social network had at least 2 (two) buttons for liking or recommending or sharing links.

It’s now time for Google to get into the game with its own Share button.

Google Share Button

I’ve yet to use it on my sites and blogs but it seems to complement the +1 button pretty nicely. There’s no need for me to +1 a link, then hover the mouse again to open the sharing popup.

Try clicking on the button above to see how it works. It will not do any harm, just share my page.
