Twitter Tuesday announced a new Follow button--similar to Facebook's "Like" button--that allows users to follow you from your website, and Google announced its new +1 button Wednesday. Here's how to use them on your website.
Previously, a business website had to redirect users to its respective page on Twitter to be followed.
Google's announcement says the +1 button is shorthand for "this is pretty cool" or "you should check this out."
Here are details about the two new buttons.
