so damned confused

Okay, so apparently, Google Friends Connect will be closing down.

First off, why?


I took a look at their site and it appears that any blog site that is not Blogger based will lose GFC, or, at least, that is how I read it. it also looks like they are using this to try and force the thousands, if not millions, of blogs out there to promote their crappy Google+ dying idea. Pretty sad it you ask me. I have Google+. Haven't looked at it since I joined last year...that is how important and interesting it is.

I have looked at a couple other blog follower sites, like Bloglovin', but there are just so many hoops to jump through and are just too complicated. At least for me...but I haven't had much coffee this morning either.

So, there you go. If, on 1 March, I disappear, or you disappear for that matter, we will find each other again. We will find a way. We will overcome.

Peace, Love and (why fix it if it ain't freaking broke??) Zombies \IiiI

You always give me a chuckle...oh yes, we will overcome! :)

It's not terrible, just annoying. There is also the rumor that, in the future, GFC might go away for Blogger, too. They really want Google+ to workout, but I'm not seeing it.

We'll adjust, won't we? We've doing it forever. But that doesn't mean that we won't bitch about it ;-)

I think you will overcome. I think it's people with Wordpress and Typepad (for example) that lose the GFC. But Blogger blogs will continue to have GFC...dont' quote me though. I haven't even been to the website, I'm going through what I heard via the blog grapevine.

I heard about this too & I'm not liking it either. Honestly, I've only been on G+ like 6x cause it's way boring. The only cool thing about it is it's group video chat.
