{May 16, 2008}   Friend Connect By Google

Reading the excitement out on the Internet about Connectability and Portable Data is all the buzz surrounding Google, Facebook, MySpace, Blogs and Social networks, Internet Marketers and more. Inviting friends and influencing people are all the current rage on social network sites, connecting all of this together is a huge job that Google is tackling with Friend Connect.

“Google Friend Connect integrates with contact lists for social networks like Facebook, orkut and Google Talk. This means users who join your site are instantly connected with friends who are already members, and can invite friends from other networks to visit. They can opt in to broadcasting their activities to friends in their social networks. A post to your message board, for example, can instantly be visible to people in multiple social networks, along with links leading to your site. These instant networks, combined with the wealth of OpenSocial gadgets, can form potent new online communities, very quickly and very easily.”

After reading the article and getting excited for Google yet again, I really started thinking about this concept. I think the benefit will be to the websites who use this application for certain, but (isn’t there always a but? 🙂 It will, in essence, be like a HUGE Twitter badge or widget on a website. Blogs and Social Networks are connecting in many ways today.

If you have multiple email accounts for instance, and merge them all together to be then forwarded to say Outlook Express. Well, then say you are an Internet Marketer who has several email accounts, and you decided to merge ALL That together! Hmmmm…

Now, what if you have 5 or 10 active social networks? That start to acquire a great deal of time from you. You have already mentally placed a priority system on the sites you like best so you visit them more often and consequently spend more time there. What if you merged all of the messages, chats, and content?

Hmmm…

It will be nice to jump from one to the other, have a “Hub” so to speak, but will it or would it be overwhelming for some? Or will it make life on the Internet much more simple having a one stop for your social information? I, personally, am eager to find out.
