Google+ Embedded Post Test
So called embedded posts have just been introduced on Google+. Personally I am quite wary of any new Google services or features. I fell on my face too often.
What’s good for Google is not automatically good for you.
Yes, I still ban Google search here on this blog but I use Google+ frequently. I also still use Google Analytics and Google Webfonts among others. So I am willing to give Google a chance each time. Do embedded posts from Google+ make sense? Let’s just try to make them work:
To assess the value of this new feature my questions are:
- Will someone engage with them directly from the post?
- Can people visit the link mentioned in the post directly or will they have to go to Google+ first?
- Is the content really on my blog or do I just include a frame like with YouTube?
As to #1: I don’t know yet, it’s your turn. When it comes to #2 the answer seems to be yes. The last question has to remain unanswered as of now, technically there is no frame I can see in the source code but the content isn’t on my site either.
Any other questions you’d like to have answered?
