Google's Blogger To Make Some Big Moves
Blogger's Biz Stone told The Industry Standard that they are considering several enhancements to the service, including Enterprise blogging, privacy controls, and image hosting.
The full list of proposed enhancements that may or may not make their way into Blogger, according to the article:
Biz also said that they have solved most of Blogger's performance issues.
- Native image uploading, so users can upload images to their blogs
- Integration with Gmail
- Enterprise version of Blogger, allowing companies to have internal blogs, much like Google's "Blogger In Google" service
- Creation of privacy groups, so bloggers can limit access to the blog or to posts to certain persons
Meanwhile, Blogger has resolved some performance issues Stone acknowledged in March that were affecting the service, including slow response times. "We really spent a lot of time working on that and overall performance for 95 percent of users is really great. We're continuing to work to make that last few just as good," Stone said.
Can anyone confirm the current reliability of the service?
Hopefully, we'll see these improvements in the near future. Maybe Google will start giving Blogger the added publicity they deserve.
Oh, and Biz is "a Google executive"? I had no idea...
