Let's start by appreciating the fact it's Friday! Good times.
Now I'd like to talk about something not related to fashion or beauty....Horrid and boring? Perhaps. Bare with me please though and read on because it could be really important to you!
Firstly, I got it back!!! Yep, after an age trying to work out how, several posts in the Blogger forum, an email to Blogger and absolutely no assistance from them whatsoever (thanks guys)...I DID IT! Me. All by myself.
*breathes sigh of relief* I'm just a regular tech junkie I guess, who knew!
I'm talking about my Google Friend Connect gadget if you hadn't worked that out yet. Which leads me to the next point. On so many blogs I visit I see people talking about GFC closing, lamenting that it is no more. I don't know if you know this or not but I studied journalism at University. So, as the big bad-ass journalism graduate that I am, I get bugged by inaccuarate news spreading. So I'm here to try and help people hear the truth....are you ready?? News flash people....
GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT IS ONLY CLOSING FOR NON-BLOGGER SITES!
If you need the proof here's the announcement straight from the Google people themselves, "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..."
Read it with your own eyes on the Official Google Blog if you still don't believe me! What this all means is plain and simply:
- If you are blogging via Blogger, as in your address ends with blogspot.com or you have a custom domain that you post to via Blogger then you will not lose your GFC.
- If you use Wordpress, Typepad etc etc then you will not be able to use GFC anymore.
Rejoice! Well, if you're on Blogger that is.
I hope this helps to set things straight. Go tell people or feel free to link to this post so that our Blogger friends can stop wasting time worrying about it and get on with enjoying the fact it's Friiiiiiiidaaaaay!!
Oh and....follow me on Google Friend Connect now I finally have it back :) Happy Friday everyone!
