Hey all,

I would love to have my ticker as my facebook cover photo.

Does anyone know an easy way of doing this? I have saved the image of my ticker then tried to upload it, but the positioning is all wrong and it wont let me rescale it.

Anyone able to help?

I know I would not be able to have it automatically update but I dont mind changing it each weigh in.

Additionally is there anyway to share to Facebook, like share when i weight in and my profile says 'vaidd lost 0.7 kilograms since his last weigh-in! He's lost 4.7 kilograms so far.'

The only way you could accomplish this is to take a screen shot of the ticker and then upload it to Facebook.

If you do not know how to screenshot on your computer you can google your device + "screen shot" and it should help you out.

If you are using a Mac you can hold down shift + command + 4 and you will see a cross hair. Put that in the top left of your ticker and drag to the bottom right - VOILA - you have a picture of your ticker for Facebook.

Hope this helps.

If your on Win 7 use the snipping tool in start/all programs/accessories/clipping tool.

Cover photos are 851 x 315 pixels, so I'd open paint (or photoshop if you're lucky enough to have it), get a blank image open in that size, and paste the ticker where you want it on the cover photo. Facebook's current way of editing cover photos kind of sucks, so that's probably the best way to do it. Then just save it and upload it, and it'll be the exact size and in the exact place you want it.

In the end I had to save the image from here and then encase it within a white border using pain. But my cover photo is updated. thank you for the replies

On the question of Facebook sharing:

Thanks for taking the time to contact us. We apologize if you are having a problem with your facebook updates.

Have you recently updated your Facebook to the new "timeline view"? We have noticed that in this new view, posts do not quite show up as they might have previously. Any Exercise/Food diary posts will show up lower in your "timeline" in its own section while your status updates will show up as if they were posted directly to Facebook, but will say "via MyFitnessPal above it

Image not displayed

Please check to see if this is the case for you.

Also, if you have the Timeline setting "review posts that I am tagged in before posting to my timeline" turned on, MFP posts will not show up automatically. Please check this setting under Privacy Settings and then Timeline and Tagging.

If you're looking in the right spot on Facebook for your updates, but your MyFitnessPal posts are not appearing on Facebook, you can try unlinking your accounts then relinking them to see if that fixes the problem.

To unlink your Facebook account, go to this URL:

On that page, the "Facebook" checkbox should be checked. Towards the bottom of the Facebook section, you should see a link labeled "Unlink". Click that link to disconnect MyFitnessPal from Facebook.

Once that step is complete, make sure you are logged into the correct account on Facebook. Then go back to that same URL on MyFitnessPal. The Facebook checkbox should now be unchecked. Check it, and you will be taken through the process to reconnect Facebook and MyFitnessPal.

Once your Facebook and MyFitnessPal accounts have been reconnected, automatic sharing on Facebook should start working again.

If this does not resolve the issue for you, there is a more advanced solution here:

Let us know if that helps or if you are still having a problem. In the meantime, thanks so much for using the program. We wish you all the success in reaching and maintaining all of your diet and fitness goals.
