Do you follow my blog via this thingy and read it on a Google reader?
If so, then, please read more! Because you need to take some action if you still want to follow this blog.
If you have not heard, Google is retiring Google Friend Connect (GFC) from non-Blogger hosted blogs by March. So, pretty sure that is why the GFC thingy on my right sidebar has been out of commission. Not only can you not become a new follower that way anymore, but if you already follow that way, you MUST find a new way to follow or you will soon no longer get updates.
Non Blogger blogs (like mine, I use WordPress) that have followers through GFC will lose their Google Friend Connect followers unless their followers chose other means to follow; email subscriptions, feeds, etc.
YUCK. Really, Google?!
So… this is a quick note to say that if that is how you follow, please choose another way to follow if you want to keep following.
I recommend that you follow via Facebook, email or any of the other readers. Ways to subscribe are on my right sidebar.
So, what are your thoughts about Google lately?
If you have any insight into this, I’d love to hear from you! See reader’s questions below.
I also hear that Picnik is closing in April. People are pretty mad at Google for that as well. Is Picasa (also free) kind of the same thing? I don’t use either. I use Photoshop, so enlighten me on this!
