    Connecting Your Account to Facebook

    So I finally figured out how this Facebook Connect thing works.

    If you see at the top of the site next to your username, you can connect your Facebook account to your VHLinks account. You do have to link them together BUT it shouldn't link any of your other Facebook info at all. I know people like to be real protective of their identities, so do I! I made sure that other stuff didn't come over so not to worry there.

    The point of it is after you link them you can easily share threads YOU create on your Facebook, and like threads from here so that it goes on your wall. There's a little check box next to the Submit New Thread button to publish it to Facebook. It puts it on your wall and you're done. It only works for new threads, I didn't see any reason to let you share your posts in a thread on FB that's kind of unnecessary. Obviously if you're connected to your FB account you can like ANY thread as well. The "Like" button is right below the thread name.

    I know a lot of vBulletin forums are doing this to grow their presence on FB so figured with all these new things we can do with this board, we should get with the times as well.

    Any questions about how this works let me know. I tested it and it seems to work well.
