Important update on followers gadgets

Hi Sweet Stampers,

I'm sure most of you are aware of the recent confusion over the removal of Google friend connect for non blogger blogs & the resulting promotion of a certain replacement tool....

We had previously added the new linky to Sweet Stampin' like many other blogs & challenges because alarm bells started ringing about followers disappearing but following extensive research we've decided to remove it.  We don't wish to be responsible for encouraging you to sign up.

We can find no evidence to suggest that the google friend connect is disappearing, only rumour of dubious origin.

So for now, carry on following us on GFC, we are so grateful for all your support & love seeing your wonderful entries to our challenges.  Have a great day.

♥ Love from the Sweet Stampin DT ♥

Hi Abi, Glad I did not do anything about the "Rumours", I am one of these that waits until the end before I decide to change, so glad i did not do it. Thanks for letting us all know. Debbiexx

Google will still be keeping its normal 'followers' button as far as I can tell. It's just being removed on wordpress and other non-blogger blogs. xx

Thanks for that Abi, I'm one who has signed up for Linky Followers and now have it displayed on my blog beneath GFC - it was free after all but I don't find it very user friendly so will just wait 'n see.
