Recently Facebook opened up their timeline for activities beyond the classic “Like”. You can go all “Beam me up, Scotty” now – when you hit a Flattr button we’ll automagically post it on your Facebook page. We almost called the Flattr box “Stuff good enough to get my wallet out” box :)
The screenshot here shows what it will look like and the aim is simple – make it nice and easy to share the stuff you think is so good that it deserves more attention and the support of your friends too.
How to turn it on?
1. Visit your connection settings page.
2. Add a new connection with Facebook.
3. Click on the “Timeline settings”.
4. Tick the box (if it isn’t already).
Done, now go flattr something good!
Are your flattrs private?
If yes then these will not show up on your Facebook, obviously. If they are private by accident (our default was “private” for a long time), then you can change it privacy settings.
Have already connected Flattr to your Facebook?
If you’ve connected your Flattr account with Facebook earlier then you probably still need to take the steps above as we need some extra permissions from you to be able to post stuff to your timeline. You’ll see a “Reconnect” button in the dialog and will prompted for the permissions. Couple of clicks and you’re done.
What will you flattr today?
