Google+ comments was recently introduced by Blogger, it is fast becoming the comment system for blogger blogs as more and more blogs are beginning to integrate it into their blogs. WordPress users are not left out as a Google+ comments plugin has been developed for WordPress blogs. If you are on blogger platform and you are still yet to integrate the Google+ comments to your blog, quickly read Babanature’s post on “How to enable Google Plus Comment Box on Blogger Blog”.
For WordPress users, the Google+ Comments for WordPress lets you use the Google+ comments system on your WordPress site just as those in Blogger blogs. Implementing the Google+ comments for WordPress into your WordPress blog will seamlessly replace your default WordPress comment system (or any third party comment system) you use on your blog.
The Google+ comments for WordPress is still in its early stage of development and as such may not have a lot of features (probably the reasons why I am still using my old comment system). But one cannot ignore the advantages of using the Google+ comments system for your blog. Using this plugin on your blog will improve your social media activity especially where it matters most – Google+.

1. Download the Google+ comments for WordPress Plugin here.

3. Activate the plugin from the dashboard.
