Google+ has announced two updates to its system making posts embeddable and integrating Google+ sign-in with Google’s Authorship program.

The embeddable post announcement comes two months after Facebook announced that it was rolling out the same system.

Google+ has rolled out the product with media outlets such as Business Insider, Financial Times, TechCrunch and Elle.

Seth Sternberg, director of product management at Google+, explained in a blog: “With embedded posts, site owners can now add your public Google+ posts to their web pages — as a primary source, for example, or to highlight your point of view. Text, photo and media posts are all supported, and the embeds are fully interactive, so visitors can +1, comment and follow you online.”

As well as this, Google+ announced that those who sign in to WordPress with Google will see the articles they publish automatically associated with their Google+ profile.
