Read Write Web’s Marshall Kirkpartick has discovered that Orli over at Go2Web2.0 has installed the new Google Friend Connect widget.

“Prominent Israeli tech blogger Orli Yakuel has just installed the first Google Friend Connect widget we’ve seen yet in the wild. The service lets visitors to a website with Friend Connect enabled see the friends of theirs from other social networks who are also members of that website’s community. It’s like a cross network MyBlogLog, but hopefully even cooler.”

As you can tell…this widget eats up a ton of sidebar space..but thats ok…heres what it will do for you.

Attract more visitors. Visitors bring along friends from social networks like Facebook, orkut, and others to interact on your site.

Enrich your site with social features. Choose engaging social features from a catalog of gadgets provided by Google and the OpenSocial developer community.

No programming whatsoever. Just copy and paste snippets of code into your site, and Google Friend Connect does the rest.”
