Do You Have to be a Web Expert to Use Google Friend Connect? (Answer: No)

Some assume that Google Friend Connect must be difficult to use. Actually, it is an extremely user friendly system. Even those with limited or little web or computer experience can easily use the system successfully.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a system where you could connect all your social networking sites, profiles, and friends into one centralized location? Wouldn’t it be even better if you expand this capability to include not only all these social networks but also traditional websites and blogs as well? Well, you no longer have to dream about such a service being invented because it already has. It is called Google Friend Connect and it is a system that shrinks the internet in a small and easily manageable social networking system.

While all this sounds great, it also sounds like it must be complicated. Surely, such a system must have many steps involved. It probably also requires a great deal of computer experience in order to properly operate. Honestly, you do not have to be a web expert to use Google Friend Connect. This is a system that was designed with the average person in mind. So, anyone can operate it effectively regardless of computer or web experience and with little instruction.

Google understands that most people need an innovative and helpful platform that is simple to use. When a networking platform is difficult to navigate or embodies a decidedly non-user friendly approach, it undermines its own prime purpose. After all, you cannot build a vast network if the platform makes the entire process overly difficult. Again, Google understands this and that is why it has devised a system that is easy to operate and navigate. In fact, it is such a simple system that even a complete novice can use Google Friend Connect to its maximum potential.

So, how exactly does Google Friend Connect work? Let’s take a look at its most basic aspects…

Really, all that is required to add your sites to Google Friend Connect is to include a widget on the website(s). Now, some might infer this requires a complex understanding of programming language in order to do. Actually, there is really nothing to it. Google Friend Connect provides a code for the widget. All you have to do is copy the code and paste it onto the appropriate place on the website or blog. Yes, that is all that is required and you are up and running as a member of the Google Friend Connect social networking system.

Signing into Google Friend Connect is an extremely easy process as well. In fact, there is no need to open a new account as it can be used with a number of pre-existing email and messenger systems. These systems include G-Mail, AIM, Yahoo, or OpenID. Google was clearly looking to make this particular networking system as user friendly and inclusive as possible and it shows!

One thing that needs to be kept in mind is the fact that Google Friend Connect is still in the “beta stage”. That means it is a new concept and will probably be altered as time progresses. That is to say, any bugs that exist in this social networking system will eventually be fixed. This will make Google Friend Connect even easier to use as time progresses. So, if you are having a little trouble with this social networking system there is no need to worry. Google will eventually get around to correcting the flaws and making Google Friend Connect an incredibly simple, user friendly, and easy to operate system as soon as possible.
