Google blogs about new Blogger features for 2011
Tuesday 15 March 2011
Google is making some big changes to its blogging platform in 2011. Blogger will soon be refreshed with a next-generation user interface and will offer a new content discovery feature.
The announcement was made on May 14 during the SXSW Interactive conference in Austin, Texas, USA, where technology companies such as Microsoft, Samsung, Nokia, Sony and AOL are gathering to talk about the future of online interaction and the web.
According to website monitoring company Alexa, Blogger is now the sixth largest website in the world. Google hopes to increase its reach this year with the introduction of additional user-friendly blogging tools.
In 2010 "Blogger users published more than half a billion blog posts, which were read by more than 400 million active readers across the globe," said Google while promising that 2011 will be "another exciting year" for the platform.
Google teased bloggers with images of the cleaner and more modern dashboard and post editor designs but shied away from mentioning specific launch dates.
The company also provided a glimpse of its new content discovery feature that "lets you uncover interesting and related content based on the topics of the blog you're currently reading."
