Google has announced the launch of a bunch of new plugins for Google+ that will help visitors in connecting with a company on the social networking platform directly from the company's website.

Here are a few more details about the plugins:

New Follow Button

The Follow button lets visitors follow a company from its website. The button has an appealing design and compact, so it integrates easily with existing social buttons.

Google will keep the existing badges live for up to 90 days so that webmasters have ample time to switch to the new version. Moreover, Google will automatically upgrade Google+ badges to new design after 90 days.

Today's plugin updates are visually more appealing and consistent with the recent improvements in Google+. The +1 and share buttons are also improved and will be automatically updated in the next few weeks.
