Google Friend Connect service will now support 47 different languages allows the users to connect with their friends on different websites

Google said its Friend Connect service will now support 47 different languages. This service allows the users to connect with their friends on different websites and blogs. With the main intention to connect social websites to non-social ones, Friend Connect represents and standardizes the content as well as the social apps. This service is available even in different Indian languages like Hindi, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, Oriya, Tamil, Bengali, Telugu and Gujarati.

Google Friend Connect is free to use just like Facebook Connect. However, Facebook scrapped the idea of Friend Connect pointing out at the privacy policies. Friend Connect is said to distribute Facebook user data to developers without the user's knowledge.

Google boasts that over five million sites are using Friend Connect for building social communities. If you own a site or blog at Blogger.com, visit www.google.com/friendconnect and it will show different language options once opt for either setting up for a website or Blogger blog. Users can also add Google-created as well as Third party developer made gadgets to their respective site or blog for rendering data in specific language.
