Here is a video from WebProNews about the new Google Friend Connect API

With this, it allows you to integrate many social style interactions (Comments, votes etc) into your site. Google have created some Open Source plugins for WordPress, Drupal and PHPBB.

I will look at adding the WordPress plugin here and see how well it works.

You can find the plugins here : http://code.google.com/apis/friendconnect/plugins.html

If you know of any other plugins that have been developed, leave a comment on where it can be found.

    1. Hey,

      Thanks for that, Friend Connect looks like it could generate a whole bunch of user created plugins. Cant wait till Digg and the other social bookmarking sites use it.

      Cheers

    do you think it would be nice if its above the submit button? if you manage to put it above the submit button, could share it? πŸ˜€

    1. Hi there,

      I installed the default one provided by Google. In their example, I think I remember it in between, I will have to see why mine isnt, possibly due to the theme? If I figure it out, I’ll post the code change here.

      Cheers
