Just a quick headsup for bloggers that are using a platform other than Blogger.
If you are currently using Google Friend Connect, don’t forget that as of March 1, 2012, GFC is being retired except for blogger blogs.
[gn_quote style="1"]Google Friend Connect—Friend Connect allows webmasters to add social features to their sites by embedding a few snippets of code. We’re retiring the service for all non-Blogger sites on March 1, 2012. We encourage affected sites to create a Google+ page and place a Google+ badge on their site so they can bring their community of followers to Google+ and use new features like Circles and Hangouts to keep in touch.[/gn_quote]
Not sure at this stage whether I will replace GFC with something else at this stage or not, will have to give it some further thought at this stage.
