Today we're launching Facebook on Quizlet. This feature lets you use your Facebook account instead of a Quizlet account to log in to Quizlet. This removes the need to create a Quizlet account with a password and email address and birth day--you just use your Facebook!
If you already have a Quizlet account, you can use both. If you do authorize Facebook with an existing Quizlet account, Facebook features on the site will only show when you are also logged into Facebook (there will be helpful prompts that show you how to do this).
In addition to logging in with Facebook, you can do some special Facebook things within the site:
When you post a new set (that's not private), you have the option to post a link to it on your Facebook page, so that your friends on Facebook can see what you're studying:
You can also see your currently online Facebook friends that are also studying on Quizlet. The My Groups page becomes My Friends and you'll see something like this:
If you've added Facebook to your Quizlet account and want to remove it, you can do that in your preferences page (link at the top-right corner).
This is just the first start on the Facebook project -- giving you the basic features developers Facebook gives you to integrate websites. As we hear suggestions and explore the platform more, we'll add things that make this integration even more useful.
So, what do you guys think? Let us know :)
P.S. I also slowed down Space Race a little and made some bug fixes. Post a comment if you see something amiss. Thanks!
