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 http://www.myfitnesspal.com/account/sharing 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.

P.S. Sharing on Twitter is coming soon!
