Google Inc. has released a new version of its Blogger service, adding privacy settings that restrict readership to a predetermined audience. Users can choose to have blogs accessible to anyone or just to themselves. Or they can list the e-mail addresses of the people they want to let in. Those readers would need to register for a free Google (nasdaq: GOOG – news – people ) account – the same used for its Gmail and other services – and would sign in with their regular Google passwords.
Might this development make Blogger more attractive to schools?
