I'm really excited to announce that you can connect your SparkPeople account to your Facebook account to share your updates from SparkPeople with your Facebook friends. I think this is a great new way to Spread the Spark and help many more people reach their goals! However, if you don't have (and don't want) a Facebook account, we completely understand. (There are many other ways you can still Spread the Spark
As a SparkPeople member with a Facebook account, you can choose to automatically feed certain SparkPeople activities, such as status updates, blog posts, and more, to your Facebook account. You can do this by using Facebook Connect
to link your SparkPeople account to your Facebook account.
To be honest, the most valuable way you can Spread the Spark to others with Facebook Connect is by updating your current status on SparkPeople, which will appear prominently on Facebook.
For example, I like making status updates on SparkPeople like, "I just added 50 fitness minutes to SparkPeople!" or "Two SparkPeople members were just featured in USA Today!" Each time I update my status here, it automatically updates on Facebook.com, too (thanks to Facebook Connect). This is a fun way to motivate my friends on Facebook to join me at SparkPeople to get healthy and reach their goals.
Thanks a bunch to anyone who chooses to help Spread the Spark by enabling Facebook Connect. We appreciate your support! I hope that you'll help some people you know by doing so, too. This is one of those things that if enough people decide to do it, it could make a real difference in our mission to Spark millions of People to live healthier lives!
