Google took to the Official Google Plus Platform Blog this afternoon to announce its new Google+ Share button.

The feature does exactly what it indicates and lets visitors share content with their friends, rather than use the newly-revamped +1 button for a quick endorsement. Oh, and it even turns from gray to red after being clicked (take a look above).

The Google+ Share button is open to publishers around the world, and the code is available to Google Developers at the website.
