GFC is not closing down for Blogger.com

Hello guys,
I was reading alot about GFC ( Google Friends Connect) getting discontinued and people taking about shifting their blogs from Blogger or requesting their followers to follow them through Hellocotton and Bloglovin. 
Well no need to panic or move your blogs from blogger as GFC is only getting discontinued for non-Blogger sites which means if you have your blog on Blogger you will still be able to use GFC but in case you are using Typepad or WordPress, you cannot use GFC anymore.
Here’s the official statement:
” Google Friend Connectβ€”Friend Connect allows webmasters to add social features to their sites by embedding a few snippets of code. We’re retiring the service for all non-Blogger sites on March 1, 2012. We encourage affected sites to create a Google+ page and place a Google+ badge on their site so they can bring their community of followers to Google+ and use new features like Circles and Hangouts to keep in touch. “

So rejoice! Well, if you’re on Blogger and yes don’t forget to follow me on Google Friend Connect πŸ™‚
