Updates to the Facebook Integration

Submitted by Frank on 01/15/2011

The Facebook Integration has gone through a ton of changes over the past few days. Since these updates have been made, the integration is more stable and easier to use than ever before. The changes were necessary because Facebook made changes to their platform...

Facebook no longer supports:

  • Profile Boxes
  • Profile Tabs
  • The version of Facebook Connect that TomorrowsPro was using

As a result of these changes, the profile boxes and profile tabs will no longer be available from TomorrowsPro. These types of integrations worked great because you could show your stats to others without having them sign up for another application. If there was a way to build your stats into Facebook so your friends could see them without connecting to TomorrowsPro, we would have built it. Since that doesn't exist, we have enhanced the way the TomorrowsPro web site uses Facebook and built stat sharing with your Facebook friends into the site.

The changes that were made were enhancements to the Login/Registration process and the "Friends" page.

Registration/Join your Facebook Account to your TomorrowsPro Account

Whether you are a new member wishing to use your Facebook credentials to join TomorrowsPro or you are an existing member who would like to join their Facebook account to their TomorrowsPro account to enabled Facebook sharing, the process is the same.

Navigate to in your browser and click the Facebook Login button.

A Facebook login window will appear. Type in your Facebook credentials and click "Login"

If you have already connected your Facebook Account to your TomorrowsPro account, you will be logged into TomorrowsPro at this point.

If you haven't connected your accounts yet, you will notice that the Facebook login button has become a Facebook Register button. Click on this button.

This Facebook Register button will bring you to the TomorrowsPro Register page. Fill in the Facebook form at the top of the page and submit. By using your confirmed Facebook e-mail address, you will not have to confirm your address again. Also, if your main Facebook e-mail address matches your Primary or Secondary TomorrowsPro e-mail addresses, we will link your Facebook account to your existing TomorrowsPro account. If we can't find a match, we will create a new account for you. (Add a Secondary E-mail Address to Your Account)

Friends Page

The friends page has been around on TomorrowsPro for a while, but now we have improved it. Since TomorrowsPro doesn't allow you to connect or be friends with other members of TomorrowsPro, we have setup a way to share stats with your Facebook friends only.

Your friends page will list all of your Facebook friends who have:

  • Connected their Facebook account to TomorrowsPro
  • Set their Sharing options to share seasons with Facebook
  • If these two conditions are met and you are currently logged into TomorrowsPro with your Facebook credentials, you will see which friends have updated their stats recently as well as all of the stats they are sharing with their friends.
