A Recent Update for Google Friend Connect

 on  with No comments 
I'm not sure how many people this affects, but at the end of last year, Google made an announcement that they were going to make a change to the Friend Connect system that lets you connect to sites on Blogger/BlogSpot to follow the blog, make comments, etc.  Supposedly the change was to happen on January 11.  If you use Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other Openld providers to connect to Google Friend Connect, you will probably have already noticed something is amiss.  You will no longer be following the blogs you used to follow, and bloggers will have fewer followers.

Moving forward, Google will require you to have a Google account in order to use Google Friend Connect, and you will need to use that Google account to connect again.  I doubt that there are many people out there that don't have a Google account, either a personal account or one through work or school.
