Share your MyFitnessPal updates on Facebook

We implemented Facebook connect last night so that you can automatically post all of your MyFitnessPal status updates to Facebook.  Now all of your Facebook friends can stay updated on your progress and offer you support and motivation.  When you lose weight, they can congratulate you, and if you lose momentum and stop logging, MyFitnessPal can let them know so they can encourage you to get back on track.

To turn sharing with Facebook on, go to "My Home", and click on the "Connect with Facebook" link in the right-hand column, or go to:

and click the "Autopost updates to Facebook" checkbox.  

One important thing to note is that you can adjust what types of updates you share on Facebook.  So, if you only want your Facebook friends to get notified when you lose weight, you can configure your sharing options to ONLY share weight loss posts.  Just go to and turn off any options you don't want to share.  Everything is 100% configurable by you, so if you don't want to share something, you don't have to.

We hope this will provide everyone with another way to get the support and motivation they need to succeed.  So start sharing everyone, and get motivated!

Thanks, and hope you are enjoying the site.

Mike & Al 

P.S. Sharing on Twitter is coming soon!

Nice to see some neat updates, but I really hope this sort of thing isn't turned on by default. I definitely don't want to find out that MFP is posting to my facebook or something like that without my prior awareness. Most people on MFP use an alias and may not want all their real world friends seeing their diet status!

Dom_m -it is NOT turned on by default. You need to specifically tell MFP that you want to share your updates on Facebook, and grant us permission to do so. If you don't do that, your updates will not be shared.

It's a great idea but it keeps telling me I need to log in (and that I haven't) while I've got FB open. Look into that and I'll use it for sure.

I have to agree with Dom_m! i don't know that I want this on Facebook! So I am happy that I have to sign up for this service. I LOVE MFP and have it on my desktop on home and work computer! Thanks, Mike, for trying to reach all people with different venues...

mine isn't updating Facebook either.
It's not remembering my choice to have MFP Autopost updates to Facebook. I've checked it 3 times already.. and clicked update - but the next day when I log in.. it's unchecked again. This has happened for the last 3 days.

Craig - any chance you disabled our application in Facebook? In Facebook, under "Account", choose "Application Settings" and make sure you see "MyFitnessPal" in your list of apps.
