Is it necessary to have a Facbook account?  I do not have one and do not see the  need.

When I click "connect with Facebook" button here is what happens: it tells me to sign in, then to accept instructables (witch I did) and then the window closes...2 seconds later instead of your Facebook account badge on instructables it just says "connect with Facebook" again! PLEASE FIX THIS

Is facebook worth it?

I'm wondering if it's worth getting facebook/twitter. I don't know that many people, but there are a couple that have it. I'm not used to things like this, as it is I got my email account 2months ago. So, should I get facebook or twitted, and what are the benigits?

Facebook for Nerds

This may be just me, but does anyone else feel as if Instructables is a social network of nerds?

Facebook Connext

I can't connect via Facebook (which is how I would normally connect) anymore. Neither from the upper right connect box, or the one when you try to Favorite. I had to create an account just to submit this bug (which defeats part of the purpose of social logins). And, after creating this account, I was not able to link  the account to my Facebook account. It just does nothing, in all cases.  FYI.. using Chrome on OS X. I see others are having issues as well, so please take a look into this. I'd like to make sure I can get the things I favorited previously.  Thanks.

Facebook tweaks

I've just pushed out a small set of changes, mostly around the Facebook integration.  The Facebook login button isn't so obvious, and we've now got some admin features to handle a case that turns out to happen more than we expected.  Here's what it is: Some people have both an Instructables account and a Facebook account.  Some of these use different email addresses for each.  When a person clicks the Login with Facebook button and approves Instructables with their Facebook account, one of the pieces of information we get is their email address, and we check it against our existing email addresses so as to link the correct account if we find a match.  Often there is no match, and in the vast majority of these cases the person doesn't already have an Instructables account.  So we make them one, and link it to their Facebook account. However sometimes they do have an Instructables account already, and now all of a sudden they have two!  This is confusing and wrong, and we'd been dealing with it in a rather arduous manner involving direct database changes, which is always something to avoid.  Now we've got a system for admins to handle this case with just a few clicks. Other than that, there are some bugfixes, for example around character display -- a few of our new Facebook visitors don't use the Latin alphabet!  So we handle that a little better now.  We have some more sensible default actions for new registrations, and a couple things to help our admins manage contests more easily, which they've been asking for for some time.

Facebook Connection

Hi guys, I think I might need a little help linking my instructables to my facebook.  I have tried using the button several times, 10 I think, and I have made sure I carefully put in the username and the password correctly, but whenever I click sign in it always gives me a blank screen?  Anyone else having the same problem, and does anyone know of a solution or a different way to connect the instructables and facebook accounts?  Or is my facebook connected and I just cant tell because of the blank screen?  When I log onto facebook seperatly it doesn't show in any way that I am connected to instructables.  All of your answers would be helpful.  Thanks!

Facebook "Post to Profile"

Hi Guys,  I just wanted to touch base with you all about the Facebook "post to profile, that's now on the bottom of each and every  page.  I like the ability to post 'Ibles on my Facebook account... Social advertising for the author, social advertising for instructables.  Great idea!  However, It's making me nuts that it's above the comments in all the Instructables.  I often like reading peoples comments, and seeing my own facebook account there ever time, is not a lot of value added for me, and it feels sort of distracting.  I'm not the hippest person around I'll admit, and don't post every thought I have on facebook or twitter, so perhaps other users will disagree with me... But i figured I'd share my few pixels.  I DO really like this feature at the top of the page, where you have a row of other icons... Favorite, Twitter, flag, print & email...  -AlpineButterfly

Facebook login is here!

I've just pushed out a rather large set of changes.  I'd like to present to you, the ability to log in using your Facebook account.  If you already have an existing Instructables account, you may link up your Facebook account to it on your You screen.  Watch upcoming releases for the ability to post automatically to your Wall, use your Facebook pictures, and more.  We will be rolling them out one by one as we get them complete and tested.  It's pretty hard to test this integration before it's live, so it's quite likely we'll find issues -- please bear with us (For example, we don't handle non-Latin alphabets in user names right quite yet).  Tell us when something goes wrong by filing a bug in the Bugs Forum. Another significant change is to the layout of Instructables.  We've made it easier to read with a slightly bigger font size, and put the pictures above the text which many users have been asking us to do for some time.  The editor has also had some improvements - bigger size text area and a cleaner look too. And of course we've fixed a bunch of bugs.  Notably, the problem some users were having with featuring, and the image notes not displaying right.  At least, they looked fixed when we tried them - if you are still seeing these or other issues, and you've cleared your browser cache to get rid of old javascript or CSS, let us know!
