We have been experiencing the integration of Google+ social layer in Blogger. It's getting deeper and deeper as both products are of Google. Google +1 button, Google+ Badge and Google+ Followers are results of the integration of Google+ in Blogger blogging platform. Do you know what's now? Blogger extending the blogging experience by offering Google+ mentions in your posts.
Google+ Mentions in Blogger
Yeah, as like you mention users on Google+, now you can mention them in Blogger with the help of Google+ integration even the person is in your Google+ circles or not. Once you mention a person in your post, the name will be linked with his/her Google+ profile and your readers can easily find them on Google+ to connect with. Well, hold on. No need to jump on Google+ with the link. A hover card will be displayed when someone hover their mouse over the mention and readers can easily add mentioned person to their Google+ circles. Clicking on the link will lead them to full Google+ profile too.
Did you notice something strange? I just mentioned a Google+ page over there, not a person. Yes, I know what you thinking right now and it's true. You can mention Google+ pages too. Now, mention is done. After the mention and once the post goes live, you might reach them to say that they have been mentioned in your blog post. But you don't need to. Not anymore. Whenever you mention a person or page this way, the person or page will get a notification about the mention right after your post get published. Now, how about that?
