Zambian Economist and Google +1

At Zambian Economist, we continue to enjoy the dawn of a new social network in the past couple of weeks: Google+. Our page has been set up for those taking part in the trial to follow - you can find us either by searching Zambian Economist or the gmail address or clicking straight to our profile page.

Eagle eyed readers will also have noticed a new icon underneath each blog post that allows you to recommend our post to your friends. If you’re logged into your Google account, your +1 will show your support in a similar way to the “Like button” on Facebook or the “RT” (Retweet) on Twitter.

Think of it like this, if you have a Google+ account and something that we publish benefited or intrigues you, clicking the +1 is a new and easy way for you to share your appreciation with the world. If this sounds confusing to you, not to worry, it is just one more step to keep our readership informed. We want to stay lock step with technology and not lagging behind.
