New Google Plus Communities Integration
Anyways, now things are different. Sites and Google Plus have a new relationship and interaction within intranets is much better because of it. Check out the post from Google and their Support Documentation:
- Increase the social aspect of sites. Users can see all the posts, photos, comments, and other content that they’d see with the full G+ experience.
- Enable free-flowing communication. Users can add comments, +1s, and more to the G+ content directly from the site.
- Keep content fresh. Users can avoid duplicate content management by having G+ updates appear automatically in sites.
How embedded G+ streams work
You can embed many types of G+ post streams in your Google Sites pages. Specifically, you can embed a top-level community page, a community category page, a collection page, a search results page, or a G+ profile. Formatting of the G+ embed will automatically adjust to the width you set. Once it’s embedded, users can interact with posts just as they can on the full G+ experience.
Permissions to see and interact with the stream are determined by whether users can see the content in G+. So if you embed from a private G+ community, only members of that community will be able to see the content on the site.
See our Help Center for more details on how to embed G+ streams in Google Sites.
