Is Google Reader same as GFC?

The news about Google will shut down the Google Reader has made many bloggers confused and panic about losing their GFC friends. As you might know, GFC allows bloggers to follow each other.
But don't worry guys, they are totally different tools.

According to Blogging Edge (http://bloggingedge.com/blog/dont-panic-google-friend-connect-and-google-reader-what-you-need-to-know/)

"GFC and Google Reader are two separate tools. When GFC users follow a new blog, it’s placed in Google Reader and on their Blogger Reading List. The latter will still exist on your dashboard beyond 1st July, when Reader will be retired. - See more at: http://bloggingedge.com/blog/dont-panic-google-friend-connect-and-google-reader-what-you-need-to-know/#sthash.gNnmwkR0.dpuf" 

Google Reader site is http://www.google.com/reader/view/ 
If you go to that site, a pop up window will show this
And to make sure your blogger readers will not shut down:
From that message, I think you will know that Blogger and Google Reader are different. So, don't worry about your Google Friend Connect (GFC).

Keep calm guys.
