Why some are losing GFC Followers

Good morning friends. Yes, before I rant on about that GFC (Google Friends Connect) Followers problem again, here is an explanation of why some of us have lost quite a few Followers over the past few weeks. Here is what has happened: Followers who do not have a Google account can no longer Follow via GFC. Many thanks to Mdme. Samm for posting the official explanation for us all. She has the full explanation on her blog at this link: Update on Your Followers with Google. Many of us have long ago added other platforms to follow on our blogs, such as Linky Followers, FeedBurner, and Bloglovin'. We can also display the Follow By Email from our Blogger layout.

How is your winter weather? Here in Alabama, still colder and rainy. A few days ago, we even got a light dusting of snow. 'Cannot believe that February is right around the corner, can you? Stay warm and happy. Prim winter blessings to everyone.

  1. I posted about this a while ago. It's good to share the info. Rainy in SE Washington too. I'm happy to not have the snow right now. I can drive for an hour and find it if I want it.

  2. I saw today that I lost 12 followers over night. That is sad, and I don't know who they are so I can't send them a note. I did add the follow with email link and the follow with bloglovin.com link. I like bloglovin and use that to follow many blogs.

  5. Yeah, I have lost 14 followers myself. At least we know why. Linky Followers is a great choice to add, as is Bloglovin'. They are both easy to add, and are free.
