Improved help forum for Google Friend Connect

Friday, March 20, 2009 | 7:40 AM

When you have questions about using Google Friend Connect, the first place to look is our Help Center. Here you can learn more about topics such as setting up your site, adding social gadgets, and the difference between a friend and a member.

For the questions that aren't answered in our Help Center, many of you have been using our Help Forum. We've been looking for ways to improve the usefulness of this forum, and we're excited to announce that we've now moved it to a new platform to provide more features!

With the new Google Friend Connect Help Forum, it is now easier to find and answer questions. Similar to the Help Center, questions in the Help Forum can be placed into one of two categories -- for site owners or for site visitors.



To identify our most active Help Forum participants, we have added a system of levels, with especially helpful forum members designated as "Top Contributors." For a personal touch, add a picture next to your name in the profiles. You can also subscribe to the forum (or to individual discussions) by RSS feed, post a question and receive your answer by email, and even vote on the best responses to particular questions.

If you have any questions or would like to help out by posting answers to other peoples' questions, visit the new Google Friend Connect Help Forum.

You'll make two cathegories for questions/answers, and topic: 1= for developers, 2 =members/users of websites. But what about the bloggers and persons who're managing/editing these weblogs? Where do they come in into the plan?

You're welcomed to post your questions to the Google Friend Connect Help Forum as a site owner, or you can ask your questions at http://groups.google.com/group/blogger-help .

Improved is a very subjective word. Is there any way to formally submit an issue/bug to a formal support/development team?

I've tried the forum to resolve my issue and the only responses I've received in the forum are basically "UR DOIN' IT WRONG" and that isn't very helpful.

Thanks

I've been using Friend Connect on my site for about a month and I have about 400 friends. I just created a Blogger blog. How do I get my friends to show up in my Blogger Friend connect?
