Back in December, we added the Google Friend Connect widgets.
Since then, our little blog social network has grown to over 100 members. It’s still not entirely clear to me what you’d want to do with Google Friend Connect, other than affiliate yourself with a blog or website. I guess it’s also a way to discover other sites, but you have to spend time paging through everyone’s profiles to see what else they’ve joined.
If I missed something obvious, please tell me in comments.
I’m stoked that 100-odd people out there want to be affiliated with us. Surprised, too. Thanks.
Yesterday, Google Friend Connect added the Social Bar, a much lower-profile version of the widget that can persist at the top or bottom of your pages. You may have noticed it here, much better I think. I removed the clunky widgets from the right-hand column.
Interested in the how-tos? Viddy this:
What do you think of Google Friend Connect so far, not just here, but in general? I’m interested to know how many sites have deployed it.
