I know there's a feature here that allows users to connect to their Twitter account, but what about their Facebook account?

Some users may think it's kinda cool to connect with other users on a different level, and perhaps not so anonomously as we do here. I'm not talking about one of those 'log in with your Facebook account' things that are on most sites, but perhaps just registering your account and allowing it to be seen by other WGG members.

A Facebook login thing would be awesome. It would make life so much easier, seeing as most of the internet has Facebook, including myself and I link all accounts via Facebook if possible.

Not that anyone cares, but I just feel like saying it:

I hate facebook.

No. Just the website that can be compared to World of Warcraft.

Difference is, WoW is for nerds and Facebook is for cool people.

Yay, I have more friends in my friendlist than you! I am cooler than you!

No, I do not even have an account, and never will.

For Captain's idea, yes I think it would be nice to have a way to link your Facebook profile from your WGG profile. Completely optional of course.

For GTAComplete's idea of having a Facebook login to quickly login to WGG...I need to do some serious research into how I would implement that. But some sort of Facebook integration is coming.

Unfortunately, Google's algorithm now takes into account how many Facebook Likes/Twitter RTs/Reddit Upvotes a page gets, so to stay competitive I will be adding some social networking stuff to the site.

It will be extremely minimal. One of the best "Share This" blocks I've seen on any site so far is on KillScreen Magazine's site. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you'll see what I mean.

While on the topic, do you think it would be of benefit to add a WGG page on Facebook for fans to like even if their not members of WGG itself? I'm not truly tech savy and I can get overwhelmed with something like linking profiles (and yes i know i sound lame now) but i'm just spitballing. The site in my opinion now has become quite popular enough that at least a page would get you guys more attention and could lead to getting better quality content from the more tech savy. I'll rely on the judgement of the origonal Baron.

We're still getting in the habit of regularly posting to that page...and I guess we need to do a better job of advertising it if you looked for it and couldn't find it. But there it is!
