Let’s do the Google+

So word on the street is that Google will be pulling the plug on Google Friend Connect. There goes my 900 odd GFC followers and their blogs that I’d sure hate to lose. I’m sure a lot of us worked very hard at those numbers and this is such a shame. So what do you say we do this? Add me on Google+ (and I really hope you do) and I’ll add you back 😀 .

If you aren’t already on Google+, it’s a great way to while away entire afternoons collecting friends and getting all social-like. Just don’t forget to pick up the kids from school (though that’s never happened to me 😉 ).

If  you’ve already got a Gmail account, all you’ve got to do is log in, click on your email address on the top right corner to “Join Google+” and it takes you directly to the signup page. If you don’t have a Gmail account, you can still create a Google+ account on its own.

I find Google+ is much easier to navigate than the deep, dark dungeons of Facebook. I like the clean-cut interface that makes it a cinch to drag/drop people into circles (or groups) and even some of other stuff is a lot more intuitive. And if you have a minute, please consider following me on RSS, Twitter or Facebook as well.

    I was told that this is only for non-Blogger blogs. If you use Blogger you won’t lose GFC. It doesn’t hurt to have one more social network though, the more the better. I’m really startin to like Google+.

      Not sure about that. But logically I would think if they’re going to retire/kill off those services that haven’t taken off (including GFC), it’s likely they will no longer support GFC on any platform and will be focusing on Google+ to compete with other social networking platforms such as Facebook. The March deadline for WordPress blogs is possibly because they’re shutting down the service in phases. Just my guess.

      I’m on WP so I’ll be done with GFC come March. Happy with Google+ and happy to be moving away from Facebook which I’ve just started using but never liked.
