Introducing not only Google Drive, but a new Google Plus share button at the same time has Google in full scale launch mode.
Similar to the way social networking giant Facebook has the popular share button, Google has taken the same approach with a new white and red share button to spread content on the Google Plus social media scene.
“When your visitors come across something interesting on your site, sometimes you want to encourage a simple endorsement (like +1),” Google+ Product Manager Rick Borovoy wrote in a blog post on the official site introducing the new feature. “Other times, however, you want to help visitors share with their friends, right away. Today’s new Google+ Share button lets you do just that.”
When a user shares an item with the new Google+ share button, it will invert in color, from red on white, to a flop of white on red and alert the person sharing the content that it was successful.
The difference in the Google +1 button and the Google+ Share button is in the way it expresses the wishes of the user sharing the content they have stumbled upon. With the Google+ 1 button giving the user to “like” or express approval of content, while the share button simply allows content to be sent to others more easily.
