New Google sites have been launched by Google some months back and since then Google is improving new sites features every day. New sites are becoming easier and easier day by day for users. Google has embedded various new functions for creating sites with the ease of just drag and drop.
Google+ Streams in New Google Sites
Google has added a feature to embed Google+ streams in the new Google sites to create the site more interactive and engaging. This feature will help the user to:
- Increase social engagement of site: They can experience the full Google+ post, photos, comments, etc in the site.
- Free-flow communication: Site allows users to engage in the Google+ streams, users can comment, +1 and share the posts
- Fresh Content: Google+ always shows the current feed of the embedded Google+ streams, so users will not show the same content in the site.
Google Sites give users to embed the Google+ streams like Google+ communities, Google+ collections and Google+ profiles. Once the stream is embedded users can easily go to the site and experience the full Google+ in the site. They can easily do all the stuff they do in the Google+.
The access to the Google+ embed depends on the access of the user access on the Google+ stream. If a Google+ collection is shared within team members and collection is embedded in the site then only members can see the Google+ stream in the site.
