Google Friend Connect launched last year and is a tool for web developers to add social networking to websites. It simply allows people to log into the network via their Google account. Then they can connect with others using the site.

If you come across comments in another language, no problem. This past May, Google Friend Connect added a Translation Widget to help you connect with users speaking a language foreign to your own.
