Google Friend Connect Issues?

Is anyone else unable to follow people's blogs through the Google Friend Connect gadget? Every time I try to follow anyone, I get this message: "We're sorry... We were unable to handle your request. Please try again or return a bit later."

Yesterday I was able to follow people fine, but it was giving me this message all day today. Even when I try to add blogs manually from my dashboard, I get an error saying to try again later :(


Update: 7/11/13

I learned Google Reader itself was discontinued but GFC is still connected with blogger/blogger dashboard feed, which is what I use to read people's blogs (I didn't use Google Reader). Seems like the followers gadget is now working for me today, and I can follow people again! Yay!

  2. Google said they would be discontinuing GFC as of July 1...and I guess they really did :( I was pretty bummed out about it, but you can export the blogs you follow to Bloglovin!
