Google to Crowdsource Recommendations?

In the past few weeks, Google has introduced a recommendation bar to Google Plus, and Facebook has introduced their own recommendation bar as well. The Facebook recommendation bar appears like it will only show up when you’re on Facebook at this point, but the Google Recommendation Bar will appear when you hover over a “g +1″ button on a site that you’re visiting, and will show you recommendations from that site.

Here’s a glimpse:In addition to providing recommendations, the interface from this patent filing will also let you vote upand vote down content from the site andfrom other sites as well. The patent filing is:
