Enable Google+ Comments on Blogger.com

Google introduces Google+ comments on Blogger platform, that allows users to comment on posts and share it with privacy settings from the post itself.

Blogger users can now enable Google+ comments on their blogs. This will allow anyone with a Google+ account to simply leave a comment on a blog post. This has a double advantage, as the post can also be shared automatically on your Google+ timeline. So there is a social element to it, which means if someone comments on your post, their followers on Google+ might discover the post.

How it works:

Google+ Comments Enable

  • Visit your Blogger Dashboard and look under Google+ section. This will show the admin a new option to enable Google+ comments.
  • Once your blog allows Google+ comments, anyone signed into Google+ can comment and share the post using their account.

Blogger Comments on Google+

  • The privacy options also remain, which means you can comment and limit the audience your comment is visible to.

Why Google+ comments are important?

Google+ comments is in a way something similar to Facebook comments. But with Google+, you account is not just a social media tool but also is used for showing author of a particular page with Google’ authorship program. At the moment Google+ has not made this commenting system available outside the blogger platform. I think they might do that very soon, possibly during Google IO 2013 which takes place on May 15 -17 next month.
