GFC Will No Longer Be Available For Non-Blogger Blogs! Thoughts?

This does not affect Children Teaching Mama, but many of my blogging friends are using Wordpress to host their blog. Apparently, Google has decided that Google Friend Connect will only be available for Blogger hosted blogs starting next year!! For those of you who love entering giveaways, this may end up changing the format of giveaways! I'm not sure what will happen or if anything will be drastic. What do you think? Does this affect your blog? I would be upset if I were on Wordpress, which is something we were planning to do for 2012. :(

Seriously? That is annoying - probably half of the blogs I follow on GFC are not on Blogger.

It does affect me too and I'm not on blogger but wordpress.. however I still haven't learned how to use google + and really question if google + is that useful.

There are so many blogs that made the switch when blogger went down the other month. I prefer blogger. I don't like the old comment method on WP blogs that have never shut off the "You are posting comments too quickly" thing. If Google shuts off the other sites, someone else will come up with something else to follow the blogs with.

It doesn't affect my blog; But I think it's ridiculous! So many Bloggers have worked so hard to get the GFC following they have, and I can't believe Google is just going to take that from them!
