In the wake of Google’s announcement that Google+ posts would now be embeddable elsewhere on the web I published this, my first piece on Medium, about how an embeddable web may not be as great as one built on open links but it’s not a bad second option.

Along with the embeddable option, Google+ can now be published to directly from, TypePad, Blogger and other platforms. That’s a huge win for people who want to share what they’re writing on Google+ but who don’t have the time to manually do so. Yes, I realize that goes against the “personal” tenet of some people’s social media thinking but it’s also a reality and it’s nice to have this option available.
