To get started with Friend Connect features, all you have to do is submit your website’s name and URL after logging into www.google.com/friendconnect. Additionally, the “canvas mode” that’s used inside gadgets is updated. So now, when you click the zoom icon in the upper right corner of some gadgets, you’ll see a lightbox that displays the gadgets’ contents, instead of being taken to a new webpage.
