Google Friend Connect allows more visitors to engage in your website. Best part is, it doesn't require any programming. The user can join your website using their existing Google, Yahoo, AIM, or OpenID and they can invite friends to join your site as well.
So what can a user do once they join your website through Google Friend Connect?
First, you can add the member gadget which displays member display pictures and allows them to spread the link to join your website.
The Wall gadget which works similarly to Facebook's wall application or a blog post where users can post comments or links to videos on your site.
Another great feature is the Review/Rate gadget which is self explanitory. Allows users to rate the page or a section of a page and post a comment on the rating and get user feedback.
Once you have placed the gadgets on your site, you can then login to Google Friend Connect and view stats on how many members have joined over time. This is a completely new service offered by Google and more gadgets are being developed.
