There is a NEW FOLLOWER TOOL to replace Google Friend Connect LIVE NOW

My friends and I were part of the beta test for a new follower toolthat could possibly replace Google Friend Connect.REplace Google Friend Connecy

As you’ve probably heard, the popular Google Friend Connect  (“GFC”) is going away March 1st for non-Google blog platforms like Wordpress, and the scuttlebutt is that it will be eventually phased out completely to be replaced by  Google+. GFC was never really so much an “I follow this blog” tool as it was an attempt at the whole Facebook “friend, like” concept.

 

Bloggers know a good “follower” tool is really needed and we’d like to have one that is not tied to a million other services (seems like Facebook, Twitter and Google are linked to everything else on the Internet).  We wanted a simple, fast, easy-to-use and reliable service. Those of us who use Linky Tools and know the owner/creator (Brent Riggs), realized he would be perfect for developing some kind of really easy to use “follower” system. So we contacted him, and he loved the idea.

 

Introducing LINKY FOLLOWERS (www.linkyfollowers.com)

 

Brent has created a FREE service that a group of us mom bloggers have tested and helped develop. He is launching it today. You’re the first to be invited to try it out. I was part of the beta test group and I love the new tool! I highly recommend it to you.

 

Keep in mind this is DAY ONE of the service… there will no doubt be some bugs that the test group didn’t catch. Just contact Brent (brent@brentriggs.com)… he is great about fixing things fast. Don’t let a bug or an “oops” hurt your first impression. You’re being invited to be some of the first users of this great new tool, and your feedback will help him iron out any problems very quickly.

 

One last thing, the inevitable question: can my GFC followers be automatically moved over? NO. Google won’t allow access to those accounts but more importantly, YOU really shouldn’t sign up someone to a new service. They should voluntarily sign up themselves.  You’ll need to ask your GFC folks (and all your blog readers) to follow you using Linky Followers but its easy, quick and did I mention, free?  They’ll love the tool. It’s  a cool way to organize and follow the blogs you love.

 You can follow my blog many ways. By Email By Rss Feed Below  I'll add that to this post and by this new Linky Tool Which you can find on my blog here
