We see questions like
andI updated my Following picture last week, but several blogs still show the old picture.
in various discussions in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?.How do I show myself, using a different name, on different blogs?
Following offers many options, as you Follow various blogs.
If you have many accounts, you can choose which profile to display.
Besides choosing what account host you wish to use, you can select what profile to use, to provide your Follower persona. The profile selections do not correspond, on a one to one basis, with the account host choices. You can have a profile, hosted by
- Following (Default)
You can choose your profile host, based on your own preferences.
Each different profile can show a different combination of picture, name, "About me", "Links", and / or "Sites I've joined" features. You can change your profile selection for each site from the "Site Settings" wizard.
Once you select a profile, you'll see the current contents of that profile - and you'll have a link to the profile editor, as provided by the profile host, so you can make the appropriate changes.
(Update 2016/01): Blogger Engineering is now rewriting Following, to make the Followers gadget and the Following service more reliable - and they are eliminating these non Google services from Following. Anybody using any of the non Google services is urged to Follow this blog again - using a Blogger / Google account.
