Facebook and Twitter Connect
Update: Thank you for taking the time to offer your honest feedback. We understand and appreciate your desire for privacy. We share your concerns. Most of us would not want to publish our LiveJournal usernames or FO comments to Facebook or Twitter either (to the extent we even use them). Please give us a little time to address your concerns. We are listening, and we'll do our best to respond.
Log into LiveJournal with Facebook Connect
|In order to spread the love, Facebook users who do NOT have LiveJournal accounts can now log in, comment, view friends, and join communities using a Facebook log-in/ID and password (much like OpenID). To log into LiveJournal using your Facebook account, click on the Facebook button located in the log-in area of the LiveJournal header (as shown in the image on the right). Facebook users can quickly upgrade to a full account in Account Settings.|
Pingbacks are back!
|In response to popular demand, we've brought back pingbacks! For those who are new to this feature, pingbacks let you know when someone has linked to a LiveJournal entry you've posted. It also notifies another user if you link to one of their posts. To ensure your privacy, pingbacks ONLY work on public posts when both users have enabled this feature.
A few things to keep in mind:
Other important stuff to know:
Did you know ...?
We want to thank you for letting us know which LiveJournal features you didn't discover immediately that you can't live without. High on the list was the ever-popular LJ-cut. An LJ-cut allows you to 'hide' part of an entry behind a text link, so that the entry doesn't take up as much space in your journal and Friends pages. You can create an LJ-cut in an entry by following these easy steps (described more fully in this FAQ):
We'll be back next week with another tip.
Photos of the week
Congrats to sergey_sk78, who won our 35th lj_photophile poll! Click here to vote for the next photo of the week. You can also vote for your favorite pic in this week's themed contest, on the subject of Purple, here. FYI: We pick entries for the polls based on a combination of comments, +1 ratings, and staff input. Winners of both polls receive 500 LJ tokens. We thank you for sharing your talent with the global LiveJournal community.
Frank & Meme's Excellent Adventure
Frank and Meme had quite an eventful week, having only narrowly escaped lethal poison, booby-trapped bling, and dangerously cloying tattoos in Vegas. Congratulations to jaelijn, whose entry, A Jeweled City on the Horizon, was selected as the next official chapter in the Frank & Meme saga. We'll be sending LJ Tokens to all of our talented writers. You can start posting entries for the next episode in frankandmeme. Frank will send a drama lama to everyone who comments on new submissions, so get writing!
Thanks again for joining us. We'll see you next week!
