Social connection through online world is becoming more and more relevant these days. Even Google isn’t ignoring it. While Google’s Friend Connect was a success of some kind, it was still suffering from seamless integration with major CMS sources. But not anymore. Finally Google has come out with three Friend Connect plugins for Wordpress, Drupal and phpBB. webhole.net observes that anyone who is interested in your forum and blog will not need to make two accounts for your blog (wordpress) and forum (PhpBB) to participate. This will let less problems to occur when you switch between the two using the same account. Again you will not have to re-log each time you interchange and the annoying cookie management process will be out of the window.
As Google is found quoting,
The Google Friend Connect plugins are proof-of-concept code to integrate users with external accounts into your site. A user can visit your site and leave a comment with a Google Account, Yahoo Account, any OpenID, or in future other sites
