    First of all: Great plugin!
    With this sad, I want to request a feature. Can you implement cicle count for google plus and also follower count (not friends) with facebook?

    With facebook the lookup should be almost the same. It is possible to get this number via the API.

    With Google Plus I haven't tested it, but there is also a same looking ID for personal profiles, so I guess it is possible to get it threw the API.

    Thank you in advance,
    Edward Black

    The idea is to use the plugin pages on Facebook and Google Plus and not profile.
    So we do not have it in him.

    Yeh, I understand that. But I think there are so much 'personal only' blogs out there (wich doesn't have a fan/plus page), that it would be nice to also give them the option to display it. Not to replace the page function, but in addition to it.

    But it would be interesting to provide a page for the blog just how many friends you have on something.

    That's the thing. I don't want to display the friend count, I want to display the follow count.

    Facebook introduced the follow functionality. You can follow an author of a newspaper for example.


    Click below the headline on the name of the author. You will see a follow button with displays at the moment ~180.000 followers. Thease people decided that they want to see public posts of the author, without sending him a friend request.

    You are right, the friend count doesn't say anything, but the follow count does.

    I understand.
    But as I said, the idea is for pages and not profiles.
