Facebook Connect

It would be nice if you all implemented Facebook Connect so that when we post a fuel-up, it would put a little blurb on our Facebook thread.

i.e.: Jack filled up his Chevrolet Aveo today. He got 28.4 MPG on his most recent tank.

Maybe that could link back with more details including price per gallon, miles, etc.

Ha! We were just talking seriously about adding this to fuelly as a new project today. Yeah, I agree that updates to facebook would be cool and I am guessing we could have this feature in a week or so, depending on how difficult the facebook platform is to work with.

I don't know much about it... but a facebook application probably isn't what you want. I'd say the Facebook Connect may be just the right thing.

Agreed, although how would you combine fuelly accounts with facebook accounts? FB Connect has you log in under your facebook login. There would have to be some way to transfer the data you have already amassed in a somewhat painless way for many people to use it.

I've been looking into Facebook Connect, and it looks like you can link accounts at any time.

I don't think we'd send all existing fuel-ups to Facebook, just those going forward after you connect your Fuelly and Facebook accounts. And the data would all be stored here at Fuelly just as it is now.

I'm also looking at finding existing friends on Fuelly by matching up your Facebook friends, but I think posting fuel-ups to your Facebook news feed is the most interesting feature of Facebook Connect.

I have each new fuel up show up as my Facebook status. I have my Fuelly rss feed post to Twitter via twitterfeed.com. Then in Facebook I have the Twitter Facebook application that posts each of my tweets as my Facebook status. The result is that I already have this feature, just not through Facebook Connect.

heh, yeah that works. But for people who aren't as technically plugged in, I think Facebook Connect would be a friendlier option.

Oh, probably so. But if anybody wants to do this NOW, there is a way. Also, Twitter makes a wonderful front-end to Facebook. Although, I did find my iPhone to be the killer hardware for Twitter. I would have never started using Twitter, or found it at all useful, without my iPhone.
