I have already seen +1 on offer from India at 1K per $3.95
No surprise there, and look for promotions that will bundle +1 with +Like and with +SEO at a super discount rate. Oh man, does it never end?
did you fellas see Eric admit that he messed up with regard to FB
This unfolding drama with Google & FB is looking an awful lot like the Apple / MS battle. And in the case of the latter, it has for many years appeared that Apple would introduce new features, and MS would work overtime to catch up; in the case of the former, it appears (to me at least) that Google is chasing the FB juggernaut.
I just wish they would each devote their considerable resources to being the very best at what they do: Google would be the best search service (if they are currently the best, and I say IF, it's only because there's so little competition), and FB would be the best social service (which I guess they are if half-a-billion members is any measure).
Perhaps this will work out, but I can't help but think that Google is appearing almost desperate these days, trying one thing after another, and with +1, they're getting close to Facebook Lite. Not a good sign ~ as JoeP said, "There is a lot riding on google with the +1" ~ he's right about that.
