Rumor? Google to launch a commenting platform
Currently if you want to comment across blogs, sites and other random services you generally need to set up an account at each site. Services like Disqus, Livefyre and more recently Facebook have made attempts at providing a single sign-on that works across all participating sites. This is a huge step forward for creating conversations and Google is looking to join the current mix of options.
This would be a win-win for Google as conversations could drive usage of Google+ as well as garnering great data for their core search offerings. Facebook may be the primary target but Disqus and Livefyre may be the casualties of this battle.
