Update From Blogger :
"You may have noticed the number of your public Followers has decreased
over the last few hours. We are in the process of integrating with
There is small set of users that already use both Blogger Following
and Friend Connect. To avoid linking the profiles of Blogger and
Friend Connect users without their permission, we have set these users
to "anonymous". They are still following privately and will able to
make themselves public again.
With the official launch of the Friend Connect integration, we will
communicate with the affected users to encourage them to reset their
relationship to public. To reiterate, the number of Followers has not
changed, and we believe that the launch will improve the visibility of
your blog and community. We will post more details on Blogger Buzz and
here as the launch approaches.
Thanks for your patience,
The Blogger Team "
