Google has been reported to launch its own third-party commenting system that will run across all of the other Google services. It will especially be integrated with Google+, according to Venture Beat. Despite being Google’s, which tend to leave its own mark on its tools and services, this new commenting system is expected to be similar to Disqus or IntenseDebate.
Blogs and other news websites will be able to install third-party commenting platforms on their site and then these sites use other social networking platforms to identify a user through either their Facebook, Twitter, WordPress or Yahoo accounts. The reason why Google has been interested in getting its own separate third-party commenting system is because, just like all other things that it has been interested in to make a reach to as many web services as possible, Google wants generate more activity on Google+.
The reason is to compete against Facebook, which also has its own third-party system. However, if Google unlike Facebook allows other third-party commenting systems in its social network it will actually have a huge engagement and might well succeed against Facebook in this. There are other new features that Google is thinking to include like for example adding vanity URLs to Google+ profiles and its other future services like cloud-based G-Drive. It has long been rumoured that Google was actually planning for something like this.
It is also expected that the comments would be indexed by Google Social, which also does crawl for Twitter and Facebook used on Google’s search service. Also this will be in line with Google’s new approach to give users of its service an overall connected experience, where one service is linked with another service that Google provides.
However, some experts believe that just as many other such inter-connectivity has given Google cause for privacy concern, same could be the case this time too. May be Google would provide with an option to choose to interconnect on its commenting system or may be leave it out as was before. Further details will be revealed later by Google hopefully.
