Google has announced the launch of a bunch of new plugins for Google+ that will help visitors in connecting with a company on the social networking platform directly from the company's website.
Here are a few more details about the plugins:
New Follow Button
The Follow button lets visitors follow a company from its website. The button has an appealing design and compact, so it integrates easily with existing social buttons.
Adding the Follow button to the website is simple. All you have to do is configure the plugin and add the markup to the page.
New Badge for Communities
Google has introduced badges for Google+ Communities, which will let community managers attract members across the web. The badges are highly configurable and match well with your website design.
On clicking the Preview button, visitors will see the community page in a new browser. They can see recent posts on the new tab and join the community. Returning to the website is simple as they need to close the new tab.
Updated Badges for Profiles and Pages
The updated Page and Profile badges are high customizable. They come with features like light and dark themes, landscape, and portrait modes & turning on/off tagline, cover photo etc.
Google will keep the existing badges live for up to 90 days so that webmasters have ample time to switch to the new version. Moreover, Google will automatically upgrade Google+ badges to new design after 90 days.
Today's plugin updates are visually more appealing and consistent with the recent improvements in Google+. The +1 and share buttons are also improved and will be automatically updated in the next few weeks.Google Launches New Google+ Plugins for Websites with an Improved Look and Feel!,
