Hey guys,

Adding this cool new widget "facebook connect" to my websites so people can comment. A commenting feature is something I've always wanted on my websites but I've just added it and when I make a post, my name links (follow) to my facebook profile. Obviously this will hurt my website's link reputation if it's on almost every page of my website.

Does anyone know how I can rel=nofollow all links from the facebook connect widget?

Not familiar with that specific widget, but if you can modify the code it should be fairly simple to add that attribute. If it's a third-party service to which you only send the URL (and can't access the code), you'll have to check with them to see if you can invoke the app in a way that appends the rel attribute.
