While Apple lovers are still awaiting the September 10 conference that will introduce the new iPhone 5s, Google lovers got some exciting news today.
Today Google+ introduced a few new features, and of those new features is the ability to embed public Google+ posts on other sites. This is pretty cool for any user that wants to promote their content from Google+ on multiple platforms.
Do you want to highlight your thoughts about the day on your personal blog, but don’t feel like re-typing your Google+ post? Now you don’t have to, as you can now embed posts from Google+.
The embedding of Google+ posts is simple. You can embed by clicking the “embed post” tab from the menu on the direct post. This can be found in the top righthand corner. A code will pop up which will allow the user to copy and paste the code to embed the post.
It’s not just your words that you can embed from Google+. A user can embed photos, texts; you name it. If it’s on your profile, and it exists in a post, then odds are you can embed anything you perceive as your content from Google+ on to any platform.
After a post is embedded it’s ready to go and fully interactive on whichever platform you choose to embed the post on. That means that if others choose, they can +1 a post, as if they were on the Google+ site.
Seth Sternberg, the Director of Google+, elaborated on the new feature:
“We want to make it easy to expand your audience across the web.”
Google+ isn’t the only social site that’s offering embedded posts. Facebook announced back in July that it would allow third-party websites to share content directly from a users Facebook if they choose to.
Are you on board with embedded posts?
