Follow me, follow you

Just a heads up... with the impending demise of Google Friend Connect, if you need another tool for followers, here's a new one: Linky followers. I just added a Linky follower option, at right. If you're feeling friendly. :)

Check it out at

If you follow me through Linky, let me know so I can follow you too.

I haven't yet decided what to do about GFC going away for non-Blogger blogs.

I have to assume they'll either read me through Reader or subscribe to my RSS feed. If I start to hear they'd rather have a linky tool, I'll consider it then. At least there are options for people who prefer to read that way.

I'm more intrigued with why Google took this step. I smell a rat. :)

Iwondering the same as Maria. What was the point of taking it away?

Cate Masters said...

The why's irrelevant to me - as of March 1, supposedly, it will no longer be a tool I can use. Maybe it's not that useful a tool, and maybe it's an attempt to push us toward another product (I haven't explored Google+ so I have no idea what it offers), but Linky's an option, anyway.

I put my Linky Tools followers gadget up the other day!
