"GFC is not working?" How to (temporarily) Fix Current GFC' Issues

Some of you may already know about the issues about Google Friend Connect (GFC) that keeps saying "We're sorry.. We were unable to handle your request. Please try again or return a bit later." if you want to follow blogger based blogs via GFC. I heard that the Google team already aware about this issue and currently working to fix it. But, I think you all want to follow any blogs that you want to follow as soon as possible, and you don't want to wait any longer for the team to fix it. (impatient woman is impatient, lol)

Just follow these instructions below.

1. Click "Join this Site" and then click "More options" in the pop-up window. 

2.Next, click the "Follow" button.

3. And, you're done!

I've tried this method recently, and it (seems to be) worked.
Well this is only a temporary method to solve this issues, so I hope the google team can fix the GFC as soon as possible.

*UPDATE* My fellow blogger, Mitch, gave me another trick to fix this issue: go to the dashboard and find "add" at the reading list section then type the URL of the blog that you want to follow. Thank you Mitch! ^^


Hope this helps. Enjoy your weekend!



  1. This doesn't work for me because it doesn't have me logged in already (it asks me which account I want to use) so I can't even click "follow" from the 2nd step. When I try to log in to any account to get to that page it gives me the error message.

    1. that's too bad.. I'm so sorry this is not working for you :(
      hope google fix this issue asap

    2. I have the same problem as yours T T

  2. Sadly this doesn't work anymore for me as Google keeps asking me to log in :( But here's another trick, go to the dashboard and find "add" at the reading list section then typing the URL.
    I hope Google team will fix this asap too.


    1. oh thank you Mitch :D I'll put your advice on the post ^^

  3. yes i just did this !

    style frontier
