How do I Follow blogs that I'm interested in? I only see Google Friend Connect on the Follower gadgets.and, alternatively
I am Following "xxxxxxx.blogspot.com" - but I don't see my picture on the blog!and
My FeedBurner Following count is xxx. My Friend Connect Following count is yyy. Why the difference?Apparently, the Blogger Following feature is becoming more tightly connected to Google Friend Connect, possibly as part of the coming rebranding of Blogger, as Google Blogs.
The main change, for those of you who are not yet Following this blog (for instance) is that you now see a white on blue button labeled
Join this siteThe new button replaces the "Follow Me" button previously labeled
FollowRight now, the navbar still has the familiar "Follow" link.
We'll see, soon, if this involves any functionality changes. Right now, we're seeing terminology changes - and some confusion over the terminology.
- A person who uses Following was called a "Follower". A person who uses Google Friend Connect is called a "Member".
- To become a Follower, you would "Follow" a site. To become a Member, you "Join" a site.
- Note that Following a site, using Friend Connect, will not be the same as Following a site, using a FeedBurner Email Subscription gadget.
