Blogger Following and Google Friend Connect feature
Posted by Gautam
Well, I expected these two almost similar services to be rationalised by Google – I think we’re seeing the first signs of such an approach according to this email that the folks at Blogger sent across:
Hi Blogger & Friend Connect User:
As a result of a recent integration between Blogger Following and Google Friend Connect, your Blogger privacy settings have been changed. It is important you read this message to understand how the change impacts the sites you follow, your visibility online when using Friend Connect, and what your options are moving forward.
You are receiving this e-mail because you’ve used both Blogger’s Following feature and Google Friend Connect. So that sites you’ve joined via Friend Connect do not automatically show up on your Blogger profile without your explicit approval, we have changed your following status to "private" on all Blogger blogs. If you would like to have these sites shared publicly on your Blogger profile, here are some instructions for becoming a public follower again.
