    According to dragnhaze 6 months ago:

    "Except that the Google+ extention is only for the google chrome browser, and there are a lot of people who refuse to switch over to chrome ..."

    I use Firefox, it has the ability to act as is MS IE or iPhone3.0 and robots - but not chrome, (yet).

    Please put a Google + button on our hubs please because of the changes in Google - they want to take over the world with a monopoly of things which they already have - but want even more.

    "Google will most certainly be looking to Google Plus for signals about the authority of content creators for AuthorRank.

    Noted, ptosis! Again, we took this button down due to very low engagement, but I'll bring back the discussion re: adding it back in. big_smile

      I have a really lousy computer so it might be just me, but those Google Plus buttons slow my computer down and seem to effect the FB like buttons. They seem harmless enough but once they are gone my computer seems to sigh a relief. And FB buttons start loading and working better. Just my experience. I vote no if its a democracy thing

      Hi Simone, I think people are beginning to get the hang of it as they are utilizing the Google plus social network. I still share my work there and get quite a few views. I find that I get more visitors from there than over by Facebook. I find that visitors also share our work as well.

    I don't use Google+, but can one not simply us links within that social network?

    To be honest, the fewer buttons, the better. Too many hubbers abuse these buttons and then hubbers get a bad reputation for being spammers.

    Thanks ptosis for bringing up my comment from my other profile as the Google+ was and is very beneficial.  I just wanted to give you a heads up that Firefox now has a google+ addon which works great.
