New Comment System Connects Google+ and Blogger

Google+ is a multilingual social networking and identity service owned and operated by Google Inc.It is considered to be the second largest social networking site in the world,Facebook being the first.There are about 500 million registered users in Google+ and use the service for sharing their views,photos or videos etc.

Google has described it as a “social layer” consisting of not just a single site, but rather an overarching “layer” which covers many of its online properties.Google integrates Google+ with all the other services of it like gmail,orkut etc.

Though,there is a tough competition from Facebook and twitter,Google isn’t backing down on its social network.Instead,the search giant is speeding up the efforts to make it a top most social networking site. In-order to appeal to the users,Google has added a new comment system to g+,which integrates blogger to it.

google+ comment system to bloggerFacebook already offers comment integration for bloggers, though privacy settings for those comments are nowhere near as customizable as those of Google+ that were unveiled recently.

If you write a blog or regularly comment on blogs using Blogger, now, you can comment using Google+.Bloggers can enable the feature in the Blogger Dashboard and immediately see if people are discussing their blog entries on Google+. If you’re inspiring controversy elsewhere on Google+, that conversation will appear directly on your blog.

Even for the one who doesn’t run a blog,the new Google+ comments will be useful.You can post comments now that only your Google+ circles can see, if you’re so inclined. You can also choose to only view comments posted by people in your circles.

With the kind of privacy settings it offer,the comments a user posts on his profile can be visible to the readers who have the permission to see.

Google engineer Yonatan Zunger wrote in a blog post-announcing the integration. “Giving people these kinds of controls not only encourages more meaningful sharing–it can lead to more blog traffic.”

As Google itself owns Blogger,integrating its own services is far easier than partnering with other platforms to allow Google+ comments.With this feature,bloggers can view and post the comments and respond to them through Google+.

Apart from this,Google has made other integration moves as well,the company made headway with third-party integration, announcing that Janrain and Gigya clients’ sites (which include NPR, American Idol, and Food Network UK) are now offering a Google+ sign-in option.
