How To add Google Friend Connect to Your Google Blog


Rumors swirled last year about Google discontinuing this feature yet I still have mine. I have been curious because I find it the easiest way to connect with other blogs. I like to click on the blogs that supported me by following my blog and I find it a great way to discover new blogs on my friend's sites. I think it may have been discontinued for non Google platforms. I have a new blog friend who did not know about this feature so I went digging. Google wants us to use Google+ so adding that to your site was easy to find and my friend added that. Sorry darling - not quite the same thing. Google+ is fun however if I just want to see your blog posts they may get lost amidst everything else you may share. The Google Friend Connect feature was a little hard to find but it is still easy to add - and they simplified the title to Followers on the Gadget List.
  First thing you do is go to your blog and click Layout




Click on Add a Gadget

Scroll to the bottom and Voila' - Click Followers


A reader is great for the most current posts however it is not great as a reference point to return to a post you want to revisit or if you want to go to a specific blog.  It is pretty easy when you find where to look. I just posted this because I wanted to help my new friend and anyone else that needed this information. All opinions are my own and this post is not sponsored.
