Followers Vanished

The Solutions

For the Social Media Icon’s Showing 0 Share Counts , I have clicked each of Buttons to share on my profiles and After one refresh it was back to normal but Twitter Tweets count still showing 1.

For Followers

Restoring Follower count in bit of tricky because you have to change the setting for Google Friend Connect , Visit Setting Page For Google Friend Connect and Look for The setting Option at Left side bar .

Google Friend Connect

Change your Home Page URL For E.g YourBlogURL.Blgogspot.com To YourBlogURL.Blogspot.In ,and click on Save Settings Option.

After that Visit Your Blog and Your Followers Will be Restored.

The Idea Behind regionalizing the Blogger URL by Google is still to be announce and I am waiting for any confirmation and news from the sources.
