Another social widget, this time by Google

Recently, Google just launched a social networking widget called Google Friend Connect for your blogs and websites. It's similar to MyBlogLog but with a lot less features.

With Google Friend Connect(GFC), you get to put the members gadget, wall gadget, review/rate gadget. Members gadget is where you could sign in and out of GFC, see members pictures and profiles, and invite people to join your site.

Wall gadget is similar to a 'shoutbox' where people can post comments and share stuff. As for review/rate gadget, you can put it anywhere on your page and let visitors put a star rating.

Good thing about GFC is you can sign in with your Google, Yahoo, AIM or OpenID account.

Since it's still in beta stage, we'll wait and see if nice features are implemented in the near future. For the time being, I think it's not worth the clutter. Let's see if Google can win me over and get me to dump MyBlogLog.
