Google Preps Blogger For The Enterprise

Google is taking yet another popular feature and retooling it for the enterprise.

The Mountain View, Calif.-based search giant took Blogger out of beta last week, introducing features that are intended to appeal to business users. One such feature is added privacy settings, giving users the ability to restrict access to their blog postings.

Users can do this by going to the permissions tab, selecting “only these readers” and then entering the e-mail addresses for people entitled to read the blog. Users can also enable multiple authors for the same blog account.

Blogger now also supports syndication standards RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0, and allows for individual feeds for comments to each separate post, allowing customers to create a single location for a conversation and collaboration.

These types of features will allow companies to engage their staff and partners in a manner that is efficient and accessible while maintaining control over the audience for these communications.
