Today Google unveiled +1, the company’s new attempt to doing something in the social space. Similar to Facebook’s Like button, hitting Google’s +1 button is a way of saying “I like this post”, or “check out this article”. In short, clicking +1 will publicly give something your stamp of approval. It can then help friends, contacts, and others on the web find the best stuff when they search.

We just implemented the +1 button on iDB and of course, we want you to use it. You will see the little +1 button on every page of the site, right next to the Twitter and Facebook buttons. Make sure to hit it as much as you want because anything you can do to help spread our iPhone wisdom is much appreciated.

Of course, you can still follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our RSS feed.

Not sure you understand this whole +1 thing? Check out Google’s description of the new service here or check out this video:

    “Your profile and +1’s appear publicly in search, on ads, and across the web.”
    “Use my information to personalize content and ads across the web.”

    • I have terrible news for you: Google is already using your information to personalize content and ads…
