Google has finally launched embedded posts following the footsteps of Facebook and Twitter. With the new embedded posts feature, users can grab relevant posts and add them to their website to make a point. The embedded posts supports texts, images or media posts.

The embedded posts feature will allow site owners to add their public Google posts to their web pages. The new feature provides users with codes needed to embed posts, including a JavaScript snippet and an actual embed code. The embedded posts are interactive, so visitors can comment or even follow the posts. The feature will be available on the public posts and can be accessed from the drop-down menu that is on every Google post.

Along with embedded posts Google has also launched the new authorship to Google sign in. The feature will allow users work to be automatically connected with their profile one they sign in with Google . The feature has been launched on WordPress and Typepad, and will soon be available on, WikiHow and Examiner.

Google Director of Product Management, Seth Sternberg stated, "So if you sign in to with Google, for instance, the articles you publish will now be associated with your Google profile automatically. With this association in place, we can look for ways to surface your info when it’s most relevant. For example, today users may see your name, picture and/or a link to your Google profile when your content appears in Search, News and other Google products.”
