Blog entry by Martin Sojka posted 01-04-2009 11:01 AM 2551 reads 0 times favorited 16 comments Add to Favorites Watch is now one of the leading websites with a Facebook Connect powered integration. This is a good news for all the LumberJocks that are also active on Facebook. This initial integration streamlines cross-posting of your new LJ posts (projects, blog entries, forum topics and reviews) to your personal Facebook feed. Let’s see how this works.

1. First you have to check “Publish to my Facebook” checkbox when posting a new post here on LJ:

2. Once your new post is successfully published you’ll be asked to connect our LJ Facebook application to your Facebook account. This happens only once and is a required step:

3. Finally you’ll see a preview of a Facebook feed story. Select Full, Short or One Line option and hit publish:

4. Once done, a nicely formatted feed story will appear in your personal Facebook feed:

I’ve never joined Facebook and yet there are 4 profiles that have my name on it, meaning there are four people who have my name which I really doubt… wife tells me that I am indeed, 4 different people?
