Google +1 and Facebook

Location of +1 button on My Dreams of Disney

Google recently introduced a special feature for helping people highlight posts that they like, whether it be on a website, a search, or in my case, a blog post.

The +1 feature of Google will give users an easy location to see the various things that you like out on the web by posting a link to the subject matter in the Google Profile page of a user.  If you like something, click on the +1 icon located just under the “My Dreams of Disney” title (see above), and it will show up in your profile.  However, one thing you need to know is that if you want to do this, you will need to tell Google that your profile is public, so if that matters to you, think about it before you agree to it.  In the future, if you decided that the item you liked wasn’t so cool after all, you can click the +1 on it again and it will turn that off for you.

Here is the location in my Google profile of all of the things that I have liked using the +1 feature:

In addition to Google +1, remember that you can always share a post on Facebook, which will post it to your page for your friends to see.  If you see content on my blog that you like, please feel free to share it with your friends!

I may move around the +1 button, but for now, it is where it is.  As always my friends, thanks for taking time to read My Dreams of Disney!

UPDATE: Favorite Souvenirs

With a very short week remaining until our trip to Walt Disney World, all of a sudden I had a thought about souvenirs.  We all have our favorite souvenirs, and to be quite honest, I’m not sure which is my favorite, so I thought I would ask all of you!  So tell me, what is your favorite Walt Disney World souvenir?

I have been seeing slow response times to blogpoll.com the past couple of days, so I have decided to take down the poll.  Here are the final results, as of Tuesday, June 14, 2011, at 9:12 AM:

This is the first time that I have had an embedded poll in my post, but I don’t think it will be the last time!  Thanks to blogpoll.com for having this capability.  As you can see, there weren’t many votes (possibly because of the site lag time), but Pin Trading Goodies was the winner!
