What's All ThiS FuSS ?

I don't know about you, but I seem to be able to handle blogger and google's NEW additions/changes given time... but all I read about now is that from March 1st there will be changes to the followers link using "friend connect". I assume it has something to do with this privacy issue?
Does anyone out there understand what's happening?
What is everyone going to use? There seems to be several NEW followers buttons around the blogs I visit.
Will we need to belong to several followers lists?
Will we need to "invite" readers?
My questions are never ending???
I need help!
Some bloggers have opted to join "Linky Followers" and I started too and have my fingers crossed this works just as well as the google followers link did. If on March 1st we all loose our followers link? at least I will be a little better prepared. Having said this, if you want to join/follow me thru the "Linky" on my sidebar, please do... it's free and easy to sign up. I just don't want to loose all my friends.
If you know a better link PLeASe let me know.
If the powers to be come to their senses, perhaps the original link will stay in place and we can forget all this fuss!

From what I understand, this will effect Bloggers who want to follow non-Blogger blogs (WordPress & such). I currently use Google Reader to keep track of all the blogs I am interested in. In the past I have usually clicked on 'follow' for Blogger blogs and have 'added a subscription' in Google Reader for other blogs (WordPress & such). I'm not sure what will happen on 1st March, either, but I hope that whatever solution is out there, that I only have to use one thing to keep up to date with all the blogs I love reading ;-)

Oh that makes sense Cathy. I guess we'll all be watching what happens AFTER March 1st! Thanks for your imput! :)

I sure wish I could understand it , I am at a total loss and also wondered if I needed to sign up for one of these other linky sites ,think I will just wait and let the chips fall where they may. hugs

it only affects non blogger blog users like wordpress etc...you can personally follow a blog for example i can copy and past your blog url and go to my dash board in blogger and go to my reading list just underneath it it says add to list click on that and add the blog you want to follow. i have to use the new blogger interface not sure if you are yet as it wont let me publish in the old blogger style and it has taken me awhile to get used to it...

i expressed posted fionas fabric on monday and it will be there today! i had a delay with postage and i ordered her fabric in so it took ages..

Hugs

I changed over to the new layout and don't like it, much easier with the old one. However not aware of further changes, maybe I need to spend an evening reading about blogger a little more!

Hmm I was sittng back not stressing about it as I understood it not to effect blogger blogs. Only concern is, like other on top have said, those using wordpress etc. One thing I'n not sure about though....I read all the blogs I follow in Google Reader (that next button is a dream come true) so I am a little unsure if the non blogger blogs will be there on the 1st. If anyone knows the anser to this I would love to know

Cheryll said...

Thanks Lisa.. so it really is no fuss and probably wont be a bother either... fingers crossed.. :)

Cheryll said...

Thanks Sharon... it's all becoming a lot clearer now! :)

The way I'm understanding it is that Google is going for more control on the Internet and squeeze out the little guy. They will be knowing more about us and I really don't like what they are up to. So they are getting less and less of my patronage. I switched to Bing as my search engine and firefox for my browser. Apparently Google can track everything you do while you are logged in to your Google account.

I hate all the change too girl. I use linky followers as well, and just added "subscribe by email" to my blog too. Apparently those who follow by email will get your whole post [pics and all] in their email. I use google reader to keep track of my blogs, I hope they're all there March 1st!

I've read that Google Friend Connect is only disappearing for NON blogspot blogs...such as Wordpress and Typepad only....so your blog would be safe!
