Fwd: Blogger updates Following feature and how it affects the blogs you follow

———- Forwarded message ———-

Hi Blogger & Friend Connect User:

As a result of a recent integration between Blogger Following and Google Friend Connect, your Blogger privacy settings have been changed. It is important you read this message to understand how the change impacts the sites you follow, your visibility online when using Friend Connect, and what your options are moving forward.

You are receiving this e-mail because you've used both Blogger's Following feature and Google Friend Connect. So that sites you've joined via Friend Connect do not automatically show up on your Blogger profile without your explicit approval, we have changed your following status to "private" on all Blogger blogs. If you would like to have these sites shared publicly on your Blogger profile, here are some instructions for becoming a public follower again.

The post at Blogger Buzz goes into more detail about this change. If you have any questions about this change or how to follow the instructions above, please visit this article in our Help Center.

Thank you for using Blogger.

-The Blogger Team

PS- If you have any follow-up questions, please direct them to our Help Group as we will not be responding to replies over email.
