Bleacher Report Hooks Up with Facebook Connect
Hello again Bleacher Creatures – Brian here – just wanted to let you all know about the feature we’ve been hacking away at the last few weeks — Facebook Connect. Chances are, you’re one of the 300 million users of Facebook who can take advantage of these new features:
- Log in to Bleacher Report with your Facebook account — one less email and password combo to remember.
- Easily share the great articles, polls, and comments that you find on B/R with your friends on Facebook.
Here’s how to get started:
Look for one of the bright blue “Connect with Facebook” buttons. They’re generally in the black bar at the top of any page on Bleacherreport.com.
If you’re logged in already, you’ll find one next to your name.
Click on one, and you’ll be prompted to log in to Facebook. Next, if you’re not already logged in to BR, you’ll be asked to enter the email address and password you registered with. Pick your sharing settings, submit, and you’re good to go.
If you’re already logged into BR, you’ll be asked to choose your sharing settings, and then you’re good to go.
If you don’t already have a Bleacher Report account, just click on ‘Sign up for Bleacher Report’ or ‘Connect With Facebook’ and follow the directions.
Once you’ve connected, we’ll share your activity so you can talk trash or cheer on your team with your friends on Facebook.
For active BR writers, this is a great way to get more readers to your great work, so make sure you connect your account soon!
That’s all for now! Feel free to reach out to me with feedback or leave a comment here. Thanks.
