Blogger gets Google+ Auto-Complete

I really can't say how long this has been around, but considering I've been using blogger several times per day during the last few years and have just now noticed it, it certainly hasn't been that long. When you're composing a new blog post on Blogger and happen to type a "+" sign, you now get a auto-complete popup suggesting Google+ contacts, pages, people. (Strangely enough, communities don't seem to be included, at least for now).

It's just one more step in Google's battle to promote Google+, and that certainly will help reference pages - like our own +Aberto até de Madrugada (sorry guys, it's in portuguese, but I really don't have the time to maintain both a portuguese community *and* an english one as well) - and people. And as you would expect, easily referencing something it the first step to start using it more.

Also, I've noticed that slowly but steadily, more and more people have been flocking around Google+. Some are people that are simply disgruntled by the way facebook and twitter are behaving lately... other that have found Google+ to be a "safe haven" where they can do everything they wished for in a social network, and more: with pages, communities, video hangouts, photo sharing, powerful group management (with the circles), and more.

    1. Now all I need to figure out is how to give ownership of my G+ community to my G+ page, so that it shows up there. (Made the mistake of creating the community in my personal account - and trying to promote the page to owner returns an error.)
