Death of Google Friend Connect

I was sad to heard about the death of Google Friend Connect as it is the way I read most of my favourite blogs. But now it will only work until March 1. 

Google said in a statement yesterday: "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."
  
The IFB has some handy tips, and what the change will mean for you here

But if you are finding this all a bit mind-boggling like me fear not, there are still other ways to interact and keep in touch with me!

On Facebook you can follow me be liking my blog page. 



And on Twitter you can follow me at the following page: 




 I update both regularly and include links to my blog everytime a new post is added.  

You can also connect with me by clicking on the Bloglovin' logo in the top right sidebar.

  1. I thought that GFC was only going for non-blogger/google sites? or have I misunderstood?

  2. You are right, it is for non-blogger sites, but for bloggers it could mean the potential loss of followers because the GFC option will no longer be available to non-bloggers, unless I have read it wrong. And if your blog is hosted by a website such as TypePad, I think it is more likely to affect you.

    IFB is advising bloggers to create a new Google+ page, but not sure how much this will affect those on Blogspot.
