Followers (Non-Blgger sites)

I'm sure by now most of you have seen the news that the follower button is disappearing.
I THINK, If I am reading this correctly that it is only to affect NON Blogging sites.
Correct me if I'm wrong!


Read this

Thanks Doreen for pointing this out!
I have added the new button too ~ just in case I'm wrong !
I don't like the fact that you are automatically followed by what looks like advertising companies and it also mixes the followers up, randomly so you can't tell, at a glance, who's new!

Hi Fleur, I also read it as being non-blogger sites but Vicky has posted on her blog that in time it is being phased out completely. I am happy to add the new followers linky tool that a few people are recommending but really don't know how it is going to work with the blogger dashboard. Think I'm going to hold off for the time being and see what happens.

Hope you are well and Mac is looking forward to half term :-)

Hi Fleur - am with you - I read only non blogger blogs as well. Have put the new linky on my sidebar - will see how it goes - if the advert followers become too many then I think it will be going in the recycle bin!!

Hi yes you are right it's for non blogger blogs only - here's the link http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/11/more-spring-cleaning-out-of-season.html - Hugs, Claire x

Yeah - that's my understanding too Fleur! But I've added the new linky tool for non-blogger users who want to follow me.

Will follow you on both tho as they will probably get rid of GFC eventually as they are pushing people to use their circle functionality instead!

Youre right Fleur, heres the link to the blogger blog where it states its non bloggers only. It would pretty much destroy blogger if they got rid of friends connect. Heres the link http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/11/more-spring-cleaning-out-of-season.html

Hi Fleur, yes, that was my understanding too yesterday, so have kept the new linky thing there but headd it "in case we loose it"! I didn't like the way we got advertising followers straight away either - so deleted them :) tee hee! Hugs, Teresa x
