Google Plus has introduced Annonations in their +1 button, thereby making it more social.

When you visit a website and hover over the +1 button on that website, it will show you the list of some of your friends, who did +1 that particular website. This change was rolled out late last week and now, you can make these recommendations even more visible to your users. Simply update the +1 button code, and an inline annotation will show next to the button.

Google has also unveiled new code for the +1 button that will display the faces and names of friends that have used the +1 button. This feature works much like how the Facebook Like button appears

Everybody can see aggregate annotations. Signed-in users also see personalized annotations from:

  • People in your Google+ circles
  • People who have you in a circle in Google+.
  • People in your Gmail (or Google Talk) chat list.
  • People in your My Contacts group in Google Contacts.
  • People you’re following in Google Reader and Google Buzz.

The code for the standard 24px button is as follows

<!-- Place this tag where you want the +1 button to render -->

<!-- Place this render call where appropriate -->
<script type="text/javascript">
(function() {
var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/javascript'; po.async = true;
po.src = '';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);
