Google Tools nd Features by karanfzk


									Enrich Your Life With Google Friend Connect
Google Friend Connect uses features such as OpenId (when you sign in) and
oAuth to help control the data. With the blend of the different open
products, this effective new technology is bound to become a popular
means of communication.

Websites that are not as advanced as the social networking sites can now
take advantage of Google Friend Connect, as users can use their Google,
Yahoo and other credentials to sign in and then the website owners can
have some sort of social networking sprinkled throughout their site. A
lot of codes would have to be written to allow sites to function in this
way, but Google Friend Connect allows the website to stay the way that it
is and allows the consumer to use their other applications from Google,
Yahoo, etc to interact with the non-social websites.

Basically, what this all means is that now the web itself has become
social! Yes, the public is social and we communicate with each other to
the extent that sites such as Twitter have become 'addictive'; however,
in the past websites could not communicate with each other. With the new
technology that Google Friend Connect has offered, websites can now be
social with each other.

The development of a social friends list is valued by many online users.
Now, the users can take their friends with them to other sites. Google
Friend Connect doesn't steal your log in information, your password
information or your friend's IDs and it doesn't share any information
with other sites. It is a completely friendly interface that allows the
user to control where they want to link their Friend Connect count to.

The users and the website owners are in complete control of what happens
with their account and/or website. Website owners can choose what type of
social platform that they want to incorporate into their site and users
can leave comments, participate in forums and so on. Google Friend
Connect allows you to do more than just leave comments. API formats allow
virtually any type of social interaction to be possible and with the
incorporation of some type of social platform onto a website; website
owners will see a decrease in spam.

Google Friend Connect is completely free for both, the users and the
website owners. It allows for social integration to be possible with very
little effort. Users can take their friends with them anywhere that they
can go. The only aspect that is shared from site to site is the users
photo ID, and the users still have control over that.
