Netlog integrates with Google Friend Connect
Google Friend Connect announced that Netlog have integrated it with their social networking service. Google Friend Connect provides users with a common log-in and a way to keep "connected" with their friends across multiple sites and services and it is Google's answer to Facebook Connect.
Google Friend Connect used open standards like OpenID, OAuth, and OpenSocial as underlying technologies, enabling any other service to plug into Friend Connect and the new partnership with Netlog will allow their users to log in to any site supporting Google Friend Connect as well as take advantage of the large network of people already using it. Now, Netlog's more than 45 million users across Europe can:
- Sign into any of the millions of sites and blogs using Friend Connect with their Netlog credentials
- Use their Netlog profiles on these sites
- See if any of their friends are already members of the same sites and invite other Netlog friends to join
- Share their Friend Connect activities with their friends on Netlog, and
- Send messages back to their Netlog friends
