This is a true conversation that took place when Floogle started the + 1 thingamajig. Names have been changed to protect the innocent:
m&m: Hey! I've got a bit of time
on my hands...
...anyone want me to +1 them for a while?
I need a test market.
cadbury king: I don't quite understand how +1 works. Try it on my blog if it doesn't
As I said on a previous comment; there's a spring protruding out of
my computer chair and one pain is enough for now.
m&m: +1 ing will probably give you a pain in the same place that the spring does :)
From what I can see and from what I have gleaned from Puffleberry, it's a way of
recommending sites and posts to others and it works in a similar manner to
"liking" something on Disgracebook. I just tested it on colleenchipcookie's's site and it
worked. It works on yours too - I just +1'd your most recent post. It was
puffleberry: When You +1 a post, it means you are recommending it to others on your floogle
account. Say I +1 your post, when I +1 it it will ask me to sign into my
floogle account, and the post will be promoted on my floogle account. It's
like "like"ing something on disgracebook. Yikes, my verification word is
m&m: In other words - It's a self-promoting gambit by Floogle to raise their standings
in the stock market, right? Lol! Okay, I'm popping over to +1 you so I
can see what happens. Thanks Puffleberry!
Chest? Yes, flogger has been a bit
rude lately, Puffleberry, but do not take offense because this will become less
noticeable once Frodoberry is weaned ;) Still, they should not be remarking on Puffleberry's
"stuff" should they? If it makes you feel any better they commented on my rump
once and it wasn't very flattering. I think it was "bigrump" or something along
cadbury king: Very strange. I've just +1'd your post about Random thoughts on Food; and the
picture of my book "Provisions" appeared there. I bet if you go and +1 it too then
a picture of you will appear. Yepeee ... I have a new toy to play with!
Somehow 2 people +1'd my post on Style Award on my flog. One was you. I
wonder who the other one is? Then I +1'd myself to inflate my ego further.
m&m: Yup! You +1'd me alright! How come I didn't get to see the picture of your book
though? They must have to work out some kinks still.You mean we can +1
our own posts? Cool!!
So are you saying you got +3'd?
cadbury king: I +1'd my post on Style on my Flog. And so did you. But I have 3 +1s; so someone
else must have done it. I +1'd your posts here. This one, and the
previous one and the one about Random thoughts on Godiva. When I did so, I saw a
little picture of my book Provisions next to the +1 Blue button you have to press.
But, this only happens when I'm logged in to Flogger. If I log off and visit
you, all it shows is the number of people who +1'd you. Very confusing.
But still fun. I'll +1 everyone I visit. This should gain me extra bonus points
with St Peter when I get to meet him. I'll tell him I +1'd everyone and I'd
offer to +1 him too if he lets me in.
m&m: My family thinks I'm nuts because I'm laughing so hard at your comment! I think
you +10'd me!! What a blast! I'm off to +20 you. I need bonus points
with St. Peter too, you know. That comment almost made me fall off my
chair...good one, cadbury king! The pearly gates will surely fly open when you stroll
m&m: By the way, I went to Floogle and typed in Time for Chocolate Confections and
site itself. St Peter is loving me up there ;)
colleenchipcookie: Thanks m&m! This is funny! I still don't get how this all works. I am going to
+1 you now!!
barbecue: So is this +1 stuff only open to Flogger users? This is the first I've heard of
You bet it's funny! Thanks for +1-ing me! Even if it doesn't work St
Peter will still let you pass because your intention was to +1 ;)
I'm not sure. I +1'd your site on Floogle but I couldn't do it from your
site itself. I think it's open to everyone but has to be enabled maybe? Or, maybe you have to be a chocoholic to apply?
I noticed this feature at the end of mine as well as other floggers
posts but never clicked it. I would have to agree it is more for boosting
Floogle's ratings than anything else. I do like the other feature that Flogger
provides where the icons to share a person's post either by e-mail Disgracebook,
Flitter or Flog This appear at the end of a flogger's post.
Love the comedy
routine between you and cadbury king; I'd like to +1 them :)
cadbury king: Thanx m&m for all your +1s. I think I'll go to Floogle and +1 them. That
will confuse them that they've been +1'd. Then I'll go to the other ones
... you know, they call themselves ASK (Jeeves). And I'll ask them why is Floogle
better. I wonder what they'll say. And I'll +1 them too to make them feel
cadbury king: I was +1'd by a driver today when he overtook me and waved his
hand in the air. It's catching on I think.
I have no idea how the share feature got on my flog to be honest with
you. Must have been during one of those "push random buttons and see what
happens" sessions. This flog was built on those.
Pay no mind to our +1 ing
rampage, some of us are easily amused by new gadgets ;) Be on guard though, you
just may be next on our list! Oh...right, I already attacked your flog yesterday
m&m: cadbury king,
Yes, I get +1'd a lot in the car too lately so it's definitely
You've got a great sense of humor, cad! It leaves me
non+ed sometimes ;)
puffleberry: Hey, come on over and +1 me if you want!
m&m: Hi puffleberry,
On my way!
+1 shows up in Floogle plus which, I guess you know, is the social network
that Floogle is trying to use to compete with flitter/db. I kind of like it
myself bc there's so few people on it, it's not full of folks promoting
themselves & ads etc. Just more like a few folks talking. And you can put
people in different circles so that you're not telling folks at work all about
your homelife etc :-)
jellybean: I hadn't even noticed it myself. I'm a bit behind the times here:)
Pay no attention to my babbling posts...I'm too easily amused by little stuff
