A cool new feature was added over this past weekend. Facebook provides some amazing tools that allow other web applications to integrate their site with facebook.com. We have started to take advantage of these tools and believe it will help users better share their fitness activity, and also begin to help solve the problems that arise with having multiple accounts on multiple social networks.
After joining a Challenge you will now see a link towards the top of the page like the following.
Clicking this link will display a window – one that should look familiar to you if you have used Facebook before (and who hasn’t?).
From here you may customize what the story will look like and choose whether or not you would like to post this to your Facebook Profile. If you have friends on Facebook who may be interested in either competing with you in a challenge or in simply keeping up with your progress, then this is a very quick and easy way to let them know about what you’re doing.
Of course this is all optional and nothing will be posted to your Facebook account without your explicit permission. Depending on how well-received this feature is, we plan to add more Facebook integration down the road, so be sure to let us know what you think about Facebook integration (and also post one or more of your challenges to Facebook).
P.S. We plan to post to our Twitter account more often. Click here to follow us if you would like to stay posted about some of the smaller development updates that don’t necessarily make it to the blog.
Thanks and have a great day!
