Now Available: Connect your Newsvine and Facebook Accounts

Former Newsvine intern Rob Goodlatte now pushes pixels for Facebook. See what a Newsvine internship does for your career? Apply today!

About an hour ago, we quietly launched the ability to connect your Newsvine account to your Facebook account via Facebook Connect. This is phase one in an ongoing project to allow various other social sites you may enjoy to integrate better with your activities on Newsvine.

On every sidebar except the front page sidebar (for now), you'll see a light blue box prompting you to connect your accounts if you happen to already be logged into Facebook. If you aren't logged into Facebook, or if you've already connected your accounts, you won't see the box.

Upon clicking the box, your Newsvine and Facebook accounts will become aware of each other and every time you vote on a story, this action will show up automatically in your Facebook news feed. We've only wired up votes for now but are curious as to what other sorts of functionality you'd like to see. Writing articles and seeding links will definitely come next and possibly comments after that, but with comments we're a little wary of people flooding their Facebook news feeds. Some of you leave over 100 comments a day on Newsvine (you know who you are!).

Aside from posting items to your Facebook news feed, are there any other bits of functionality you wish you had around here, leveraging your already established presence and relationships on Facebook? If so, leave your requests in the comments below.

Also, we've given Tyler the keys to the Newsvine Twitter feed. If you can't get enough of his knowledge nuggets on Newsvine, try the bite sized morsels now available on Twitter.

    did not.

    oh, wait, you meant...


    So is anyone else amused at the akward phrasing when this connection happens.

    It reminds me of the old game where you "in bed" to phrases from fortune cookies.

    What am i talking aboutt?

    by adding "on newsvine" it makes some phrases amusing or alarming

    Example - I read this today:

    Claus voted for the story Jackie Chan: Chinese people need to be controlled on Newsvine. · Comment ·

    As I posted to Claus,

    this is another one where it looks really funny because of the wording, i.e. why does Jackie Chan care about the Chinese people on Newsvine?
    I wonder if those who are not on Newsvine are like, um, what

    Jackie chan is attacking newsvine users now?

    Would it be asking too much for a NV staffer to please upload images of the blue left rail FB button and the pop-up "connect" screen for those still having difficulty? <a href="">burun estetigi</a>

      Who's Promoting Debbie Rowes to get Michael Jackson Children?

        But folks should know that they should click "comment" and then zip up to the top and hit the Vote button if they'd like the article/seed linked to on their FB page.

        What if someone doesnt want to vote the article, but only wishes to post it on FB?

        I like the new option! Was thinking of pointing it out to NV. The only prob is, I cant find the blue thing =S
