Thanks to some awesome friends of MFP who got us in touch with some very kind folks at Facebook, we think we've got Facebook sharing working again. For many of you, Facebook sharing is already working. However, if you are still having problems sharing your MFP updates on Facebook, please try the following steps:

- First, unlink your MyFitnessPal account from your Facebook account by going to and clicking the small "Unlink account" link towards the bottom of the Facebook sharing section.

- Next, clear your cookies from your browser. This article explains how to clear cookies on all popular browsers:'s-Cookies

- After clearing your cookies, you'll need to log back in to both MyFitnessPal and Facebook. Make sure to login to the accounts you want to link on both.

- Finally, renable Facebook sharing by going back to and checking the "Autopost updates to Facebook" box.

If you follow the above steps, Facebook sharing should start working again. If it doesn't, just reply to this topic with a detailed description of what's happening and we'll investigate ASAP.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Hopefully, this will fix the Facebook sharing problem once and for all.

Thanks, and hope you are all enjoying the site.

Mine worked last night! Glad that it is working again!

Not working :(
Did it step by step.

Now that I click on Autopost Updates a window pops up saying An Error occurred with MyFitnessPal Please Try again later.

I get updated on Facebook when I complete my daily food entry, but not when I log an exercise. I've followed the steps above and it still doesn't post an update when I log an exercise.

Love this application/website so much I don't care how many facebook glitches you is awesome and has changed my life!
February 17, 2011 4:15 PM
I also followed all the steps and when I came to check the box with "autopost updates to facebook" it won't check the box and I get a new screen that says, "Error encountered with myfitnesspal"

I also think this site is awesome and I know the updates will get worked out. This has changed my life. I don't care how long it takes to work the facebook glitch out.

Thanks for working so diligently!

Nope, not posting for me, either. Followed directions step by step, three times.
February 17, 2011 6:07 PM
I did the instructions twice - still not posting my updates :(
February 17, 2011 7:13 PM
I have followed the instructions a few times and my updates still are not posting to facebook. I use to love it when the ticker tape showed up. HELP!!!

If a click on twitter it updates to twitter.

Thanks for you help happy

Sorry folks, I'm not sure why it's not working. Sometimes Facebook can be a little finicky. Do you mind following the steps again and letting us know if it works this time? Make sure you are clearing your cookies as that's an important step. You also will need to log back in to MyFitnessPal and Facebook after clearing your cookies.

Let me know if that helps.
February 18, 2011 1:28 PM
Now done this a total of 5 times. Still not posting.
February 18, 2011 4:32 PM
Have tried various permutations of following the instructions. Very computer literate and can't make this work. Using RunKeeper to share my workouts via FB, but no solution for diary entry.
February 20, 2011 12:28 PM
I've resorted to copy and paste from MyFitnessPal to Facebook. It should be unnecessary, but it works 100% of the time.
February 20, 2011 4:19 PM
I tried again last night and just a few minutes ago... with no luck still :(
February 20, 2011 5:23 PM
What *shows* on FB when you link to it? Actual weight or just weight loss/gain, exercise, food? I really don't want to project my current weight to the world. :)

I've been using the MFP app on my phone. I just logged onto the website to link to facebook, but when i click the box, nothing happens. I clicked the Twitter box, and it brings the window up to allow or deny, but I don't Twitter, I Facebook - please help!
