    Heads up to anyone thinking of connecting services. I connected my Google account and found it automatically subscribe to me their feed in Google Reader. Not cool. Especially with over 1500 posts a week.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Update: Duh, their site uses Google Friend Connect to connect to Google services(used on blogs to follow and engage). It will not have access to your actual contacts, only people you ‘friend’ on appbrain.com through GFC. I would have thought app brain would have used a different implemtation since that not what GFC is typically used for. I love GFC, use it on my site, but never seen it used this way…
