Want to Connect?

Well I am going to give this a try and see what you guys think or if you are interested in taking part! On the right hand side you should see a new widget called 'Followers'. It is a new google attempt to get people more involved in the content that bloggers talk about.

Facebook readers may be reading this blog as a 'note'...scroll down to the bottom and hit the option that says "view original post" just above where you would normally leave a comment. Then you will be transported to my blog and get to see this (and my other notes) as originally intended.

I think it is an interesting idea and will give it a try for a while to see how the feedback works out or if anyone is even interested in playing. Below is an official Google developers movie introducing this new idea and their blurb on it!



Awaken and strengthen your community

Google Friend Connect instantly awakens and strengthens the community that visits your site by enriching it with social features. Watch the video below to learn more.
