We hope that some of our visitors noticed fancy rectangles at the left sidebar of our radars:

Those rectangles are Google Conversation Element. This element, powered by Google Friend Connect, lets our visitors post comments restricted to just our site or participate in a global conversation based on a topic of interest.

Wikipedia provides us with some insights on this innovative social product by Google:

Google Friend Connect is an online service by Google that allows users on the internet to connect with their friends on different websites.

Google Friend Connect is an Open Social application offered by Google that started in May 2008. Google Friend Connect main focus is to simplify the connection between social and non-social websites and standardize the handling and presentation of social applications and content..

..In May 2009, Google introduced a new feature called “Comment Translation” in Friend Connect. With this feature, comments left in any native language except English can be easily translated to English.

We created the Google Friend Connect/Conversation Element radar, which covers different aspects of using the product.

There is also an excellent Video Guide by Google walking you through the social service.

For now, we piloted Conversation Element for the Around WorldSports and Members radars only, however, eventually we will roll out them across the whole site.

Many happy conversations to you!
