Google Friend Connect is a new tool to grow traffic by adding social features to your site. Google Friend Connect means more people engaging more deeply with your website — and with each other.

What does it do?

  • Enrich your site
    Choose engaging social features from a catalog of gadgets by Google and the OpenSocial developer community.
  • Attract more visitors
    Your users can easily invite friends from social networks and contact lists to visit and join your site.
  • No programming whatsoever
    Just copy and paste a few snippets of code into your site, and Friend Connect does the rest.

It would be really interesting to see how Google Friend Connect works and how it interacts with other social media platforms.
