+1 activity updates in the stream

When you +1 a post, people in your extended circles who also have you in circles may see this +1 "activity update" in their streams.  They will only see the activity update if they had access to the original post. Activity updates may also be visible in Google+ search results to anyone who can see the original post.

You can control how often you see activity updates from certain circles as well as control who sees your activity updates in their stream.
