More Ways to Comment: Facebook Connect

Starting today, blogTO is now connected with Facebook. We're using a new feature called Facebook Connect that allows anyone with a Facebook account to sign in with their Facebook username and password to leave comments on this site.

Why would you want to do this? Here are some of the reasons:

  • If you use Facebook Connect, you no longer need to enter a name, email address and url every time you make a comment on this site. Just click the blue FConnect button you see near the comment form and the site will automatically detect who you are on return visits.
  • Using Facebook Connect allows you to display your Facebook avatar (profile photo) next to your name in the comments. Your comment name also links to your Facebook profile which makes it easier for others to get in touch with you.
  • Facebook Connect also enables you to update your Facebook wall when you've made a comment on blogTO. This is an optional feature (meaning you don't need to enable it) that alerts your Facebook friends about the hopefully witty and/or constructive comment you've made on this site.
More details about Facebook Connect


If you encounter any bugs with using Facebook Connect on blogTO, please add a comment below or email me directly at tim [at] blogto [dotcom]. One tip: If your avatar or username isn't showing up in the comment thread, you'll likely need to update your Facebook privacy settings. Login to your Facebook Account and choose Privacy Settings from the Settings menu. From there, choose Search. You then need to make sure that the Search Visibility is set to Everyone and that the Public Search Listing is enabled.
