Firstly I’d like to say that this is only based on information I’ve gathered from searching on google and reading other peoples sites/articles/blogs – I don’t have any Real knowledge about this and Google don’t seem to have said anything solid either way.
But, it seems there is hope! Google Friend Connect might not be going when Google Reader does!
The reason it got out that GFC was going was being Google announced that Reader was going and the two are linked, but not to the extent that many have assumed – I won’t go into it in massive detail as I’m going to link you to a few of the sites I’ve read that explain it properly.
That doesn’t, though, mean that GFC is here forever, a couple of years ago Google started to phase it out by stopping it being available on wordpress accounts etc – That suggests that the Do want it go at some point. BUT, hopefully, it won’t be any time soon (or maybe they’ll be really nice and let us keep it!)
It seems like a good idea to keep following our favourite blogs on Blog Lovin’ and Twitter, too, as the info I’ve found could be wrong, or GFC could go at another time, but I just wanted to share the information I’ve found with you all
Here’s a few of the pages I’ve read about this:
