The company gave the attendees at its Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco a sneak peek into its Google +1 button. Similar to Facebook's Like Button or the Twitter Tweet button, it provides a way for website visitors to endorse and share an article or web page.

The buttons will reportedly be available in several different shapes and sizes with and without counters. Users can create one of these +1 buttons from a simple form where they can generate the embed code.
