Bye-Bye Google Friend Connect, Hello Google+

Google Friend Connect will no longer work on WordPress blogs after March 1, 2012 according a post on the Google Blog.

WordPress blogs are encouraged to create a Google+ page and have a Google+ badge on thier site in place of the Google Friend Connect widget.

The GFC widget didn’t always work correctly and sometimes just plain dissappeared so that doesn’t bother me much. It does bother me that I had close to 3000 followers on GFC and now that isn’t going to do me or my followers any good at all!

Since you won’t be able to read my blog on the GFC reader anymore after march 1st, please add my RSS feed to your favorite reader!

I would really appreciate you adding Simple Wyrdings Google+ page to your circles too.  If you don’t yet have a Google+ account the instructions for making one can be found here : Create A Google+ Page. If you have a page but are not really familiar with it yet, you can read this tutorial.

Have a look around and if you like my posts please share them!
