So Google has just released one of their better social networking applications and we can’t even use it on their official Sites pages? As of this posting there is no way to integrate Google Friend Connect gadgets on Google Sites pages.
The Google Friend Connect code can be added via the html function of Google Sites, but the user is greeted with a warning that the potentially dangerous code will be removed upon viewing. A la, no more working Google Friend Connect on Google Sites.
I’m not the only one upset that Friend Connect won’t work with Sites. A thread on the official Sites Forum has over 43 posts from people looking to add Friend Connect to their personal Google Site pages. The reason it hasn’t been integrated yet, my best guess is that they were too busy copying Twitter to come up with Buzz!.
