WordPress Extends Gravatar Support With Hovercards

WordPress Introduced Hovercards

First there was Gravatars, then, earlier this year, public profiles were introduced, letting you share your social network and contact information.

Today, WordPress.com announced its new Hovercards feature, which draws the information available in Gravatar’s public profiles back into blog.

From WordPress’ announcement:

It’s now easy to find out about who is behind your favorite comments simply by moving your mouse.  This new feature is now enabled by default across WordPress.com.

Gravatar Hovercards show information about a person: name, bio, pictures, and their contact info at other services they use on the web like Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.

As a commenter, Hovercards offer a great way to show your Internet presence and help people find your own blog. As a blogger, you can quickly check out who’s commenting on your blog, and have an easier time connecting with them.
