GFC and G+-------BlogSpot and Wordpress and others

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Hi all,

Haven't had much time to really blog lately--tax time--and year ends for my clients!! I'm lucky I've been remembering to get those giveaways up!! Almost forgot a few---
Well anyway--on March 30th GFC (Google Friend Connect) will be taken away from those of you on Wordpress and other places. I have a question--will the GFC numbers decrease when this goes into effect? I mean really now--I have worked long and hard to get that darn number up there--and yes I have been diligently working on getting my G+ numbers up there as well!! Then G+ comes up with you can't use them as part of giveaways------------This sounds like a power play to me and I personally DO NOT LIKE IT. This is supposed to be SOCIAL MEDIA not BIG BIZ--but from what I have been reading (as a bookkeeper I tend to read biz news) that is exactly what Google, Facebook (who has been making some incredibly big changes as well) and prob some of the others are doing--they are going public (or thinking about it) --and we--the Social Media users are smack dab in the middle of all of this. We got to figure out how to circumvent all this nonsense!!!!
I know I have personally signed up for as many emails as I can--and I have a list on my blog of a couple of blogs who do giveaways-and of course I use other lists as well-and now facebook is being used to tell others about their giveaway linkys-but we need some consolidation here!! I know I am thinking of deleting (I know I know--never delete a post) my current giveaway linky listing and replacing it (see I haven't lost my mind altogether!!) with one where people can add their own to the specific day they hold it--it would also be helpful if they put the time it goes up (like my Sunday Linky actually goes up between 7 - 8 Saturday night!)--So I think while I have a little time I will do this--I will not delete my give away listing until the new one starts getting large!! And all of us should really start signing up for others emails or RSS feeds!!

I was not paid cash for this post. All opinions expressed are my own honest opinions. For more information please check my Disclosure Statement. Our giveaways are in no way sponsored or promoted by Facebook.
