WordPress News: Gravatar Hovercards Coming Soon for Self-Hosted WordPress Blogs

You may have seen the announcement today that WordPress.com is now sporting Gravatar Hovercards. The new Hovercards show additional information about the user: name, bio, pictures, and their contact info at other services they use on the web like Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.

They stand to add more value and community to comments, because others commenting can find out about each other and connect. Andy Peatling commented on the announcement that WordPress will be bringing Hovercard capability to self-hosted blogs in the very near future. We’ll update you when it happens, so make sure you’re subscribed!
