    As people are actually adopting it pretty fast, will it be possible to get Google+ added to the default identities of XenForo?

    Ask yourself. What would you do?

    Xenforo would be perfect to go with Google +, there's something that makes me feel good when I used both of them.

    Plus Google + is rapidly approaching 20 million users, making it bigger than quite a few established (if diminishing) social networks already.

    XenForos identity is closely tied to social media functionality. Picking up a range of features from G+ seems a natural next step to me. It would keep XF cutting edge social media.

    I don't think so.
    How do the identities interact with the social networks?
    Does it show anything from the external site on the users profile?
    Are you able to show your tweets on your xf profile?
    Is xf creating tweets after you create an thread/post?
    Does it show flickr fotos on your profile if you add a flickr identity?

    Currently XF does not have too many external services tied into the forum, but it has been built with inspiration by social media. Mike and Kier obviously learned from social media features and added similar functionality. Now that a new major social media seems to appear this offers another opportunity to review G+ and add functionality that would fit nicely together with what XF already has.

    Those are actually rather good ideas, of course it should be something that could be set up by the admin and by the individual users but that would be something I'd definitely like to see on forums I use.

    considering we still lack even the most basic twitter login, i reckon it will be a loooooooooooong time before we see anything like whats discussed above.

    There are way more Google accounts (Which uses an OpenID fork) then there are Twitter accounts.

    I would prefer "log in with Google" over anything else out there.

    Completely different suggestion.

    Having Custom Profile Fields in 1.1 should be able to solve this.

    Apart from that, I do agree.

    Not completely sure if profile fields would cover Identities as there is already a function existent for them.

    Identity services no longer exist in 1.1, they have been merged with custom profile fields.
