Google Friend Connect Disappearing March 2012
Bad news if you have a non-blogger website or blog that you have Google Friend Connect (GFC) added to. On March 1, 2012, the GFC will disappear from NON- Blogger sites. Don't panic. With the addition of Google + pages, you have until March 1st to get your followers to "+" your page. All you need to do is create a Google + Page for your business or site. It's not difficult to do. They have even made a Google + Badge for you to add to your blog. Even Blogger blogs can use this. You will see mine to the left.
Google + I think will be around awhile as it gains momentum and users figure out how best to utilize it. Even I am still learning. The feature I like best is the Circles. Segmenting is just perfect for marketing. You can choose what Circles to share certain information with.
If you're interested in learning more about Google +, let me know and I'll be happy to write up a post about it. Theory, explanations, and examples of how to use it.
Keep your eyes open and start +1 as you come across the button.
