Friend Connect outage 1957687

Friend Connect is experiencing degraded performance this morning which is affecting many Blogger blogs. This results in several known issues:
  • Your Blogger dashboard will report you are not following any blogs.
  • Recently created blogs will see an error in their Followers gadget which indicates "Community not found".
  • Managing followers from your Blogger dashboard is currently not working.
  • Adding social gadgets to your site will generate an error when the gadget attempts to display a preview, and you will not be able to complete adding the gadget.
  • Following a site by entering the URL into your Blogger dashboard will not work.
The Friend Connect team is aware of the issues and is working on fixes. Your followed blogs will return to your dashboard when Friend Connect operation resumes. We apologize for the disruption.

Update: This has been fixed.
