No Friends?

Hello lovlies.

I have heard a rumor that Google Friend Connect is going away! Just in case, please make sure you subscribe via RSS (there is a button on the top right for you) so you don't miss any of my craziness!

Until tomorrow... tata!

Well...that sucks. Subscribing.

Hmm...I wonder if I'll still get the updates since I manually add blogs to Google Reader instead of linking them through GFC.

Joshua said...

Wait...what does this mean for follower counts? If people can't follow or GFC, how will you know how many people are following you?

Why am I so bothered by this news?

Hey Breanne-- this is only for non-blogger blogs (like wordpress), so you should be fine :-). Here's the snipbit from The Official Google Blog:
Google Friend Connect—Friend Connect allows webmasters to add social features to their sites by embedding a few snippets of code. "We're retiring the service for all non-Blogger sites on March 1, 2012. We encourage affected sites to create a Google+ page and place a Google+ badge on their site so they can bring their community of followers to Google+ and use new features like Circles and Hangouts to keep in touch."

Thanks Simply Kelly. I was worried! :)
