Complete Guide To The New Google+ Comments On Blogger And WordPress
It’s been a week since Google launched the new Google Plus commenting system for blogger.In this post we will look at how to use Google+ Comments on WordPress, Bloggger and the custom blogger templates.
With Google Plus trying to compete in the social network scene with Facebook it’s no surprise like Facebook they launched their own comment system.The question for us bloggers and publishers will be “Should We Use Google Plus Comments ?”.
The thing that first struck me was the fact once implemented only people with Google plus accounts would be able to comment on your blog.With the current blogger treaded comments or indeed Discus and Intense debate readers had a number of options as to how they wanted to comment.I think the real let down with Google+ comments is the lack of an option for people that don’t have a G+ account to comment either as anonymous or with name and email.
So the other comment systems defiantly have the advantage of choice but that is just one aspect.Google plus comments do look great, are lightweight and Google+ is a fast growing network.
If you think Google+ comments is for you below we have information on how to add them to Blogger and WordPress.
That’s it for now although I’m sure there will be more updates and changes to the G+ comments over the coming months.
