Dropping Google Friend Connect and Facebook Like Box

Photoxpress 3772710 300x199 Dropping Google Friend Connect and Facebook Like BoxI’m finally doing it!
I’m letting bloody go!
Goodbye GFC, I’ll miss you so.
Goodbye Facebook Like Box,
I wish I didn’t have to let you go.

No longer shall I be shackled to my desk,
waiting and watching,
watching and waiting for your numbers to rise.

No longer shall I move your widget around my site,
searching for the best placement for visiting eyes.

I am now free,
free as a stallion that’s been let loose into a field,
to run and frolic as I feel.

Why would I do such a thing, you ask. Why would I give up two staples of my networking world? Simple.

These bloody widgets are bloody stupid. Really. I don’t know if it’s updates to WordPress or updates to Facebook and Google Friend Connect, but let me demonstrate.

Here is my Site’s Facebook Like Box, on any one’s computer, when I’m signed into and then signed out of Facebook on my own computer.

It gets really bloody old and tiring.

As bloggers, we have other things to focus on, such as great content. I’m sick of wasting time fixing the GFC and noticing the FB like box was wonky was the icing on the cake. Adios Amigos!

Oh and Networked Blogs better watch it’s behind, cause the moment it goes wonky, it’s bloody out of here!

And I think I’ll add a Twitter widget, cause Twitter has always been damn good to me.

Can you live without these widgets on your blog?

 

UPDATE: June 3, 2011. I’ve officially added the GFC and FB Like Boxes back into my design. Funny that I did so at a time where people were having issues with it and yet it works for me. But if it goes wonky, it’s gone. I love being able to connect with bloggers through GFC. Just so easy.
