You may have noticed the last time you logged into Blogger to either check your own blog or follow another, that the "Follow" Button that was originally located on the top left hand side of the NavBar has been removed and replaced with a Share Button!!
Google it seems feels that this was an unused feature (while I highly doubt that) and it suggests that blog owners install the Google Friend Connect Follower Widget to their blogs to encourage followers.
To install the Google Friend Connect Widget, if you haven't allready got it on your page, go to Design and then Layout and then to Add a Gadget on your sidebar or wherever you would like the Follow Widget Added. Select it from the Gadget Menu and Taadaa - you have a follower widget!!
I think this new format for following will take a little while to get used to, but previously there have been many blogs only using this option that had disabled the NavBar alltogether. What are your thoughts Blogger Users?
