Google Plus Embed

I just read that Google has introduced a new feature that allows one to embed Google Plus post into your blog. Let’s try this out.

You’re supposed to be able to read the embed above that I attempted from Google Plus. However, because it is Javascript, WordPress doesn’t allow. Lame. I understand it’s because of security reasons but this would still be nice to have.
From WordPress’s site:
“Users are not allowed to post JavaScript on blogs. JavaScript can be used for malicious purposes. As an example, JavaScript has taken sites such as and LiveJournal offline in the past. The security of all blogs is a top priority for us, and until we can guarantee scripting languages will not be harmful, they will not be permitted.

JavaScript from trusted partners, such as YouTube and Google Video, is converted into a WordPress shortcode when a post is saved.”

Hopefully, that last line will get fixed as my Google Plus embed is from a trusted partner, Google.

Found this post on WordPress.

Let’s try this again. If this works, you should see an embed below.
