Embed your Google+ posts into Google Earth

Google recently released a feature that allows you to embed Google+ posts on your website. It works similarly to the embed features from Twitter and Facebook, and can be a nice way to extend the reach of your posts. Here is an example using one of our posts from last week:

As Adam Simmons discovered, you can also embed your Google+ posts directly inside of Google Earth! Just put the code into a placemark and the embedded post will appear in there. Here’s a screenshot of it in action:


This can be a great way to enhance the usefulness of a KML file, and reminds me a bit of the old GEboads application that I created years ago.

Great tip, Adam!
