Dropping Google Friend Connect and Facebook Like Box

I'm finally doing it!
I'm letting bloody go!
Goodbye GFC, I'll miss you so.
Goodbye Facebook Like Box,
I wish I didn't have to let you go.

No longer shall I be shackled to my desk,
waiting and watching,
watching and waiting for your numbers to rise.

No longer shall I move your widget around my site,
searching for the best placement for visiting eyes.

I am now free,
free as a stallion that's been let loose into a field,
to run and frolic as I feel.

Why would I do such a thing, you ask. Why would I give up two staples of my networking world? Simple.

Thank you! Finally. Not everyone gets why I dropped these widgets eventhough I added screenshots to my post. I actually had a reader comment asking if I did so to give my twitter numbers a push. :-/ I sat with a potential client Friday and used my site as an example and was so happy there weren't any surprises and I find out today if I got the gig

Exactly! You know what they say, it only takes 1 time to make that first impression. My concern is that a company or PR contact will come to my blog and see this non-working widget. They're not going to think "oh something must be wrong with Twitter today, or Facebook today." It really is a reflection of the site owner and our responsibility to make sure everything looks good on a daily basis.Funny huh? We gotta keep or real spaces tidy as well as our virtual ones. Ahhh! LOL!

thanks Tawanna! Presentation is everything and when using my blog as an example to clients, i don't want to open it up to find error boxes.

I Hear ya! I dropped my Twitter widget the other day because it was completely blank! And I was seconds away from dropping the FB one as well. So tired of it going in and out like they just opened shop last week. Come on! You're FaceBook for Heaven's sake!!


I get ya Vanita!
