Google is discontinuing Google Friend Connect March 1 for all platforms except Blogger. It is also a strong rumor that they will also cancel GFC for Blogger in the near future.
LINKY FOLLOWERS (http://www.linkyfollowers.com/)
There is a new way to follow and manage all the blogs you love to follow. I have added a link for this on my sidebar right under the Google Friend Connect. I don't want to see GFC go away, but if it does I want to be able to stay in touch with all of my followers and blogs that I like to follow. If you follow me already or if you are here for the first time I would love it if you would also sign up to follow on the Linky Followers. I don't want to lose any of my friends with the chance that GFC is cancelled.
This service is FREE and Linky Followers has included some neat options:
*View the blogs you follow.
*Read follower posts from your list or on a scrolling feed.
*Group your followers.
*Mark your favorites for quick access and viewing.
*Plus you can even "feature" a blogger!
Non-Blogger users will not be able to transfer people from their GFC followers and will lose all of their Google Friend Connect friends. Don’t take a chance of losing your followers when GFC goes away for non-blogger platforms. Sign up for Linky Followers now and give your followers the option to follow you this way. This also offers your followers who are not linked to Blogger an alternative.
I would love it if you could sign up to follow on the Linky Followers. If you have a blog, please consider adding this to your blog so you won't possibly lose all of your followers when GFC is cancelled. I promise, it's easy and quick to get started.
