Google+ tip: Watch Ripples around the Web
Ever wonder how many people have shared a particular story or video on Google+? You can build yourself a simple one-click button that'll make it easy to get that info for any page you're viewing in your browser.

Now, just click your new "Ripples" button from anywhere on the Web, and you'll see a detailed list of all the public G+ shares for that page.
Pretty handy, eh?
