Say Hello to Google+ Comments - NOT!

After careful considerations and long fruitful chats with fellow TCs, I have decided that it is finally time to give G+ comments a try. This is in accordance with Google's effort to keep all their products somewhat unified and tied in a way. Seeing how important Google sees the G+ community, I think it is only fair to give this a shot. It does come with a downside though - You have to have Google Plus account to leave a comment. That, and the lack of a feature to moderate comments under a single tab is kinda off-putting. But I'll give it a whirl anyway and see how it goes. Hello Google+ Comments!

Update: Notification is not working - I'm reverting to Blogger's commenting again. I've been busy with work, and it took me several days to realise I have not been getting any notifications for the comments left in this blog. This is disastrous as it isn't practical for me to view 200+ posts one by one to look for new comments. I've decided to take a U-turn. My faith in G+ comments is seriously dented now, and it's gonna take some serious convincing if I were to switch back to G+ comments again. To those of you who have left G+ comment questions here, I'm afraid I won't be able to see your messages (please repost them once I reactivate Blogger's comment system).

  2. I went with Google plus comments about 4 months ago and now nobody comments on anything i post! They need to incorporate the option of using google plus or without signing in.

  4. I wonder why I even bothered turning them on in the first place. I stopped getting notifications too and have made a U turn. But do you know if we can have both the blogger comments and G+ comments. I had seen some have both the option in wordpress blogs. Is there a hack for blogger platform?
