Hi all

This has been a long time coming but with the old CMS we're on, it's not as easy as it should be :)

When you're reading IceInSpace news or articles/reviews on the IceInSpace website, you can now hit the 'Like' button at the top and it will share the article to your News Feed, thereby sharing it with your friends.

When you hit "Like" you can also optionally enter a comment. It's similar to posting a 'Link' to your profile.

Obviously you have to be a Facebook user for this to work for you. If you're already logged into Facebook, you can press 'Like' right away. If you're not logged into Facebook, it will prompt you to login and then it will share the link. You can also optionally Sign Up for Facebook if you're not a member.

Privacy Concerns
The 'Like Box' is a facebook plugin. The Facebook plugin checks the cookie stored on your computer to tell whether you're already logged in, and if you're prompted to login, it's the Facebook login page.
No information is shared or gathered by IceInSpace in the implementation of this Like Box.

The screenshots below show where it's located and the behaviour.

1. Normal view (yellow highlighting added)
2. When you press 'Like', you can optionally enter a comment
3. The popup you see if you're not logged into Facebook when you press 'Like'

Please give it a try and let us know how it goes for you!

I have no friends :sadeyes:

probably 'cause I have no facespace or mybook :D Edit: ps, I don't make bird sounds either. :whistle: See recent cave drawing of me below.

I'm sure many will find this useful, Mike :thumbsup:


(I was worried for a while there we were going to be told to be less social :eyepop: )

+1 for me Eric.

No friends, really, other than IIS and an ex colleague from previous job.

Good to know though, especially if I decide to Twitter what TV show I am watching....

Cheers

Chris
