Google To Monetize Friend Connect?
Friend Connect is Google’s social widget that site owners can add to their site to help bridge other Google account users together. Google launched it early this year and then made it widely available to anyone to add to their web sites. Arrington suspects that Google will soon monetize Friend Connect “as a shoehorn to insert advertising onto third party websites.” I would not argue with that.
I can go on a long rant right now, but I pretty much did that in my article named enough already.
