Google has announced the integration of two more Google products: You Tube and chrome into Google+ social network.With the integration of You Tube directly into Google+ it become easier for the users to watch and share their favourite videos with circles.Google is also going to launch a YouTube “slider” in the stream.

Facebook Like Button extension, that according to Google’s “verified author” service is indeed built by Facebook itself. But hardly anyone knows about this extension, it has just 500 users!
Facebook isn’t touting it at all yet because it is kind of weak. When you click the thumbs up icon, you get a drop-down menu asking you to click an actual Like Button in an overlay. So it’s two-clicks to “like” something. But it does also come with the nice ability to leave a comment as you share something (which the +1 Button extension doesn’t do yet). And it adds Facebook share options to your right-click menu items.
we noted that Google quietly rolled out their +1 Button Chrome extension a couple days ago. It’s more powerful than it may seem because you can now easily +1 any page you’re browsing on the web regardless of if the owner of that content placed a button on their site.
After the Google +1 Button extension, a number of readers seemed concerned about Google’s ability to track all of your web movements. Obviously, they’ll have the same concerns about Facebook with this button. Here’s what Facebook has to say on the matter:
You do not need to be logged in to Facebook to install this plugin, but to like, share or recommend a page you will need to log in to a current Facebook account, or create a new one. While the plugin is installed, it will display the total number of likes for the page you are viewing. To provide a personalized experience.

Install a little bookmarklet in your browser, and soon you’ll be presented with a list of people you search for most often on Facebook. This reveals the data that gives Facebook some of its magic, where it’s able to predict who you’re searching for when you type names into the search field. And, it could be a bit embarrassing.
It’s perfectly safe, and it’s also easy to install — as long as you’re not using Facebook with “https”. Go to TheKeesh, drag the image (or drag this text link, the image wouldn’t work for me) provided on that site to your bookmarks bar, go to Facebook, and click on the bookmark you’ve installed.
Suddenly, you’ll see a long list of people’s names, each with a corresponding number. You’ll notice that the names at the top are those whom you search and interact with most often. It’s mildly shocking to see a list, right there in your face, of those you stalk the most. And no, I won’t show you my list.
Google has announced a new Chrome Extension and Google Toolbarfeature called Google Related, which suggests new content relevant to the page you’re currently viewing. The extension offers many kinds of suggestions, including Web pages, shopping, maps and Google Places results. Google Related displays a toolbar at the bottom of the browser window, and the suggestions pop up when the mouse hovers over them. If you like a suggestion, there’s a built in +1 button.
In order to provide these suggestions, Google obviously has to track your browser history. The Google Relatedand Google Toolbar privacy notices describe how the information is used and stored. Installing browser extensions or plug-ins is voluntary, of course, and they can be disabled or uninstalled anytime.
