Seems like every other week now, Google rolls out new features for enhancing its social networking site, Google+, which it says over 40 million people have joined. This week it announced plans for allowing Google Blogger users to replace their Blogger profile with their Google+ profile, which essentially means tighter integration between both of the popular services and means of communication.
Blogger users who switch their profile will automatically get access to Google+ if they have not already signed up. This integration, Google says, will not only give blog readers “a more robust and familiar sense of who you are” but that your social connections will see your Blogger posts in the Google search results with the annotation that you have shared them. It also means that you will have one less profile to manage and update, while maintaining a consistent identity across the web.
Google admits however that if you blog under a pseudonym and you do not want to connect your Google+ name with your blog, then it would not be a good idea to make the switch, which is why Google has made the profile switch optional.
You will need a Google+ account of course to make the switch. The feature will be more accessible from the Blogger site in the coming weeks. For more information, check this Google Help Forum.
