Up-and-coming social network Google+ will soon be integrated with Google’s blogging platform, Blogger, according to a message now appearing in the “Edit User Profile” section of Blogger’s Settings.
The message reads “Connect Blogger to Google+ : Use your Google profile and get access to upcoming Google+ features on Blogger,” and includes links to “Learn more” and ”Get Started.” Unfortunately, the links are dead-ends right now, so we don’t yet know what type of integration is being planned.
The “Learn More” link is currently dumping to this “page not found” message in Blogger’s Help Center, while the “Get Started” link simply redirects logged-in users to their Blogger Dashboard.
Blogger has always been the obvious “social” play for Google that just never got disrupted in the wrong way. Until recently, it could probably be argued that Blogger was Google’s most successful public-facing acquisition, a product that’s continue to grow and get nurtured slowly into a huge platform publishing a large share of the blogs out there today. I may have to setup another Blogger blog for my “Google” life to see how the two products mingle together.
