Submission + - YouTube Phases Out The +1 Button (

bonch writes: In an attempt to bring more content to the struggling social network, Google has announced it will be phasing out the +1 button on YouTube in favor of a Google+ Share link. Previously, the +1 button behaved similarly to Facebook's "Like" as a lightweight method of marking content you found interesting without embedding it directly in your stream. The new Google+ Share button will instead embed the content in your stream for followers to view and comment on.
