Google Friend Connect means more people engaging more deeply with your website

Google Friend Connect is a much-awaited service from Google that lets you add social features to any website or blog. For instance, your blog readers can join your site (remember MyBlogLog) via their Google Account and then add comments, rate pictures or even interact with other members who are part of your blog.

If you like to see Friend Connect in action, go to Orli Yakuel’s blog and check the Friends widget in the right sidebar – that’s an OpenSocial Apps powered by Google Friend Connect. The Google blog has more details about how Friend Connect works while this press release touches upon some more possible uses of Friend Connect.


* Anyone can join your site with one click by using their existing Google, Yahoo and other accounts.
* Visitors can evangelize for your site by inviting their friends and publishing their activities to their social networks.
* Social gadgets will keep these visitors more deeply engaged with your site, and with each other
