A new report from The Next Web claimed a “source close to the product’s development” confirmed Google has a new commenting system in the works. With continued integration of Google+ into the rest of the company’s web services, the report claimed Google will likely aim to take on Facebook and its third-party commenting platform. The report explained:
The Google comment system, which will almost certainly rival that of Facebook, will have deep links to Google’s network of services and websites, indexing comments in Google Search, and most significantly, the system will be available for use on third party sites.
TNW does not give any other details, but it does note Tech-WD reported yesterday that the new commenting platform was discussed at G-Saudi Arabia alongside several other unannounced features, such as vanity URLs. We will keep you posted as we learn more.
