Google +1 Button for your Kentico CMS website

Be ready for Google’s social networking revolution!
Currently, more than 30 billion posts per month are shared on Facebook via its Like buttons. As a part of the Google+ social network, Google introduced a similar concept of a “Like button” called Google +1 button.
