Google introduces Google+ Comments today which is now available for all Blogger website. It acts as an Alternative to default commenting system. You must upgrade your Blogger profile to Google+ to use this latest Google+ Comments feature on your blog. Now the readers will need a Google+ page or profile to comment on your blog. You also have to connect your blog to Google+ for this option to be displayed. It will embed right under your blog post with the following advantages:

  • Comments made on your Blogger blog post
  • Comments on the blog post that you’ve shared to Google+
  • Shared content on Google+ that links to your blog post

“View your blog and Google+ comments, all in one place. Now when you’re browsing your blog’s comment threads, you’ll see activity from direct visitors, and from people talking about your content on Google+,” Zunger said.

Features of Google+ Comments

Google+ Comments look similar to traditional Blogger comments, but have some important differences. For example:

  • When you leave a comment on a blog, you’ll see the option, checked by default, to also share that comment to Google+.
  • Google+ posts that link to blog posts will show up as a comment underneath those blog posts
  • If original comment is shared to Google+, replies to the comment on the blog will show up in Google+ and vice versa, but only to the people that the original comment was shared with
  • If a comment is not shared with the blog author, the blog author will not be able to see the comment in either location
  • As the author of a post, you’ll receive Google+ notifications when readers comment on or share your blog post.

Previously Facebook released the Facebook Comment system, which is also enabled in my website. But it did not immediately have a steady stream of publishers ready to adopt it. With Google, it has a huge lineup of blogs thanks to its Blogger service and can tap into that for immediate use according to Thenextweb.com.

It will be interesting to see how soon Google+ Comments becomes available as a plugin for WordPress, TypePad, or any other blogging platform said Thenextweb.com.

So keep blogging and Happy Commenting.
