Like +1 Makes Facebook Like and Google +1 The Same Button

Posted Jun 21, 2011

Browser extension Like +1 boasts that it “reduces your risk of getting carpal tunnel syndrome up to 50%” by reducing the number of times you have to click. The extension turns Facebook Like Buttons into Like +1 Buttons, which simultaneously like an item on Facebook and give it a +1 on Google. TechCrunch reports that the app also saves a record of everything you Like +1, should you ever want to export and study that data.

Like +1 is compatible with Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari. The button was created by Ashkan Soltani, a security researcher, and Brian Kennish, a former Googler.
