Auto-Facebook

I was wondering, if our accounts are linked to Facebook, is there anyway we can have it so that when we publish something on the site, it auto-sends to facebook with "X has published Y on GameGrin.com"?

Since the person who actually publishes it to the site isn't the person who wrote it, there's a whole league of privacy violations to address here, which is the main reason this won't happen. (It's also one of the reasons I don't ask for the ability to post to a users wall without their permission)

The forum button that you can see in the admin is me already testing 'auto-posting' but this will only goto the current GameGrin feed on Facebook, the GameGrin Twitter and Google+.

If you want to post something to Facebook, use the share buttons on the posts for now. (Sharing actually gains us more reputation on Facebook, as it's seen as something someone actually wants to share, rather than being auto-posted to their wall).

--

P.S One of the biggest failures of "auto-posting" is when we notice someone's made an error in the post after sharing, such as spelling or a factual error in the content/snippet. Once it's out there, it's out there and we have no easy way to re-publish that on social networks. This at least helps us avoid that situation.
