The future of the +1 Button looks bright. Not only will the button have the social media aspect of it by letting other Google users know what’s popular, but the number of +1s will also help sites improve their Google ranking. In the future, they plan to add the +1 Button to the search engine advertisements. This way users can see which ads or sales are positive or are recommended by other users.
