Your +1 can be displayed as indications alongside your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results, your Google profile, or elsewhere on online websites and ads. Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others.

To use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible and public Google profile, which must contain at least the name you choose for the profile. This name will then be used for all Google services. In some cases, this name can also be used to replace a different name that you used when sharing content through your Google Account.
