Facebook Connect comes to MileHighReport

We love rolling out features. Today we've made it easier for Facebook users to signup for SB Nation and to participate in our fan communities. For existing SB Nation members, Connect allows you to login with your Facebook account. Keeping track of different passwords is a hassle, yes? You're a discriminating sporting connoisseur, and your time is valuable.

Connect makes it easier for you share what you write on SB Nation with friends on Facebook, whether you're publishing a FanPost, a FanShot or a comment. You decide what you share. And your Facebook info stays over on Facebook.

Often your posts deserve to be seen by friends who aren't yet the sort to dive into sports blogs. Or by your grandmother, who just set up a Facebook profile, and added you. Are you going to ignore her forever? In any case, this step-by-step guide should get you Facebook Connected. It's easy!

Connect With Facebook

1) The Blue Button: Initialize

That blue Facebook Connect button in the SB Nation network bar atop every blog... see it? Click it.  Don't have an SB Nation account yet? CLICK IT. What, you have an SBN account, and you're already logged in? CLICK THE BLUE BUTTON. You'll be connected to Facebook in seconds.

We've put this Connect button in several other spots around the blogs. So it'll be easy for you to Connect the first time, and easy to login again in the future.

2) The Blue Button: Engage

You'll be asked to Connect one more time by Facebook. Click this lovely blue button as well.

3) Authorize: Login to Facebook

Next you'll get a pop-up window confirming that you want to Connect with SB Nation. Login to Facebook if you haven't already. Either way, click the 'Connect' button below to authorize.

4) Authorize: Login to SB Nation

Finally, if you already have an SB Nation account and use the same email address for Facebook, we'll recognize you. Complete the process by logging into SB Nation. Done. Welcome to tomorrow.

New to SB Nation? No worries: we'll pass you through a quick registration screen. Pick a screen name and provide an email address. Welcome to the network!

5) And in the Blueness Bind Them

And here's the best part: the next time that you visit SB Nation and need to login, just  click the blue Connect button. You may be asked to login to Facebook again, but that's it. No need to remember another password! That's extra time you can use to finally learn curling, or to drink beer. Or to explain to your grandmother that you, um, really don't use Facebook much.

When you're logged in with Facebook, you'll see a little F alongside your avatar in the network bar. Huzzah!

Post to Your Facebook Wall

Once you've connected SB Nation with Facebook, start sharing stuff to your profile as you publish. It's easy to push a comment, FanPost or FanShot to your Facebook wall.

Check out the checkbox at the bottom of the comment form.

Blog_comment_form_medium

If you check that box and click the 'POST' button, you'll see a familiar Facebook form:

Blog_comment_feedform_medium

Give your friends some context for your comment, and rell them why it's awesome. Click 'Publish' and the item will be published to your Facebook wall just as you see it here. No surprises. No whammies.

It works the same way in the FanPost tool. Just check the box labeled 'Post to my Facebook wall' before you publish your post.

Here's how a FanShot photo looks when published from SB Nation to your wall:Facebook_fanshot_medium

Sweet, right? It looks even better if your Facebook avatar has a mustache.

We hope you enjoy the new functionality! Our tech team is excited about Connect, and we're happy to address any questions here in the comments. Thanks for being a part of our network.
