Sharing links with your friends and family on social networks is easy, but Google wants to make it even easier for you to share maps, directions, searches, products, and offers with +Snippets. While you're browsing around within Google products (like Maps, Offers, Places, etc.), you can instantly click the "Share" button that will reside next to your Google+ profile pic, and a link to the item, product, or page you're on will be auto generated and populated in your Google+ status update. You can then share publicly or with one or more of your circles.
Google will be rolling out +Snippets to more of their online products and properties soon, but until then, get a closer look at what a +Snippet looks like in the gallery!
