Google Friend Connect - Ready to Launch?

Google earlier opened Friend Connect for a limited number of users only but I suspect that the public launch of Friend Connect may happen very soon.Google Friend Connect is a much-awaited service from Google that lets you add social features to any website or blog. For instance, your blog readers can join your site (remember MyBlogLog) via their Google Account and then add comments, rate pictures or even interact with other members who are part of your blog.

Google earlier opened Friend Connect for a limited number of users only but I suspect that the public launch of Friend Connect may happen very soon. Thats because Google today released a new video that gives a short introduction to Friend Connect and unlike previous videos, this one is more inclined towards marketing the service to the non-developer crowd.

Google generally introduces new products or new features in existing products through short YouTube videos and this Friend Connect video may therefore be a hint about the public launch.

If you like to see Friend Connect in action, go to Orli Yakuels blog and check the Friends widget in the right sidebar thats an OpenSocial Apps powered by Google Friend Connect. The Google blog has more details about how Friend Connect works while this press release touches upon some more possible uses of Friend Connect.
