Missing Followers?

At least it's not just me this time. In the past, I'd tried to use blogger to comment on friend's blogs, to find myself in a vicious circle everytime having to sign-up, log-in, re-sign-up, over and over. It's largely why that, here in 2009, blogging is new to me!

Now I see my followers count has increased, and I am one of them!

Yup...apparently I'm following myself! Good thing I'm not afraid of my own shadow or there would be a serious confrontation there!

But others are saying they've lost followers.

This was posted at blogger:

"Hey folks,
You may have noticed the number of your public Followers has decreased over the last few hours. We are in the process of integrating with Friend Connect.

There is small set of users that already use both Blogger Following and Friend Connect. To avoid linking the profiles of Blogger and Friend Connect users without their permission, we have set these users to "anonymous". They are still following privately and will able to make themselves public again.

With the official launch of the Friend Connect integration, we will communicate with the affected users to encourage them to reset their relationship to public. To reiterate, the number of Followers has not changed, and we believe that the launch will improve the visibility of your blog and community. We will post more details on Blogger Buzz and here as the launch approaches.

Thanks for your patience,

The Blogger Team
