Google is always experimenting with new features aimed at improving the search experience. Take one for a spin and let us know what you think.
Your selected experiment: You have joined the +1 button experiment. Note that you can only join ONE experiment at a time.
This is your selected experiment.
Use +1 to give something your public stamp of approval, so friends, contacts, and others can find the best stuff when they search. Get recommendations for the things that interest you, right when you want them, in your search results.
Click the new +1 button, and make your mark on the web
Your +1’s are public. They can appear in Google search results, on ads, and sites across the web. You’ll always be able to see your own +1’s in a new tab on your Google Profile, and if you want, you can share this tab with the world.
Please note, it may take a while before you see the button in search results, and it may occasionally disappear as we make improvements. Your feedback will help us make it better!

This is www.lifeblob.com. Entry is by invites only (a bit like Gmail’s launch). It’s a bit like Plurk in the horizontal style of the posts except for a big difference. I can import my blog (www.decisionstats.com for me) in this and all posts are imported in a time bound manner. I can zoom in and out and even tag my connections with relevant posts.Click on the screen shot if you want a better view.
And yes I can import Gmail and Yahoo address books to (which i did= and sent an invite to my top 3500 friends only). What’s more you can expand the posts (so you are not limited to 140 words only).
Big Drawback- Only One Blog can be imported . Well suppose I wanted to import all blogs I like to read (reading is an equally part of my life as writing , right) .Other big drawback- I had to manually click update 85 times for my 85 posts on Decision Stats.The love kind of softened there.
Good things- once I am done, i can pretty well zoom in and out. So its like a enhanced blog reader for me, an online journal, a micro blog hence the name -lifeblob.
I wonder how they measure the online metrics for these- time spent ,number of accounts,number of posts, number of friends,number of invites,number of tags to friends, number of readers of posts etc.
One more thought- Can we use softwares like these to track project progress as like a wiki.Import the RSS feed of the project wiki/project Google Site page. Just kidding! Check it out if you want to have a better way to organize your blog, or just keep a good online journal.
