I will admit I was somewhat apprehensive about switching from Blogger
to Wordpress. After many, many internet searches I found the directions
for transferring Google Friends Connect(GFC) from Blogger to WP. These
work you can ask Jen at @jaeldesignsinc

1)When you log into GFC, your url will have an ID # at the end, copy this number
2) You need to getting into the settings tab of your current GFC profile Here's how
3)Type the following url into your browser
http://www.google.com/friendconnect/admin/site/settings?id=paste id # here
4)In settings; Go to the advanced tab----->alternate domains box
----->type in Wordpress domain name or if using Dreamhost(type in
this domain as well) ---->Save settings
4)Now I am not sure if this is necessary but I installed the GFC Integration plug in(there is a highlighted portion within the plug in text that says GFC admin page I pasted my ID# in site ID field.) go to bottom of page --->update options
5)I also installed the GFC widget plug in
5)Next I went into Appearance ---> widgets---> and dragged the
GFC widget to my designated sidebar and pasted my ID# into the GFC Site
ID field--->Save

I did not change any of the colors(too afraid to mess with success)!

Did this actually bring the feed or was it just the pictures of the followers that came over?
Dalia,
I am certain it brings the feed because I can see the new followers. From Google Friend Connect you can also copy and paste the code for your new site. In Appearances, add a text widget and copy and past the new code. This works as well. I hope this helps.

Sorry for the delay.
