Social network by internet giant is “Google+” getting popular exponentially and of course they already have a huge customer database and all they have to do is to promote this new product among them.However people know the fact that Google+ is very special kind of social network with very unique features.
In parallel to Google+ they introduced +1 buttons for web masters.However the design of +1 button is non alterable and doesn’t go with most of the common web templates.If you already have +1 button, when you take your mouse over, it will pop up sharing window which is user unfriendly 🙁

First step you need a suitable icon/image for Google+ share button.Find it and edit in the way you want.

https://plus.google.com/share?url=<?php the_permalink(); ?>

You can also update the link with an image icon with below code.
[php]<a href="https://plus.google.com/share?url=<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><img src="your-custom-google-plus-icon/path/gplus.jpg" alt="Google+" title="Google+" /></a>[/php]
