Outsourcing Blogger Comments to Google+

Alex Chitu, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Apr 29, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I think Blogger is probably on the way out. The evidence for this (beyond the demise of other Google products people actually like) is the development of Blogger's new comment system, which is essentially Google+ comment system (with all the weaknesses that entails). As Alex Chitu writes, "you can no longer manage comments from the Blogger dashboard and the new comments aren't included when you export your blog." To my observation, there is a remarkable similarity between Google+ comments and a garbage can. Except people actually want garbage cans. See also: add Google+ comments to web pages.
