Google+ pushes past Twitter in battle of the buttons

The Google+ button has beaten both the Twitter Share and Twitter Instant Follow buttons combined only two weeks after its full worldwide release.

A report by BrightEdge Research found the search giant’s new social recommendation tool had a button on 4.5% of the sites analyzed.

That is in contrast to the 2.1% using Twitter Share buttons and 1.3% using Twitter Instant Follow buttons.

While Google+ remains far from the 10.8% web presence held by the Facebook Like button, its early hype and Google’s search dominance could help push up the numbers.

There is also speculation that Google+ will be integrated into other Google services such as Gmail.

Experts are predicting Google+ will welcome its 10,000,000th user tomorrow and the service has received plenty of favorable reviews.
