Linking Facebook account to WKC
« on: May 22, 2014, 02:01:52 PM »
Just wondering the implications of linking the two accounts. Will everything I post then end up on Facebook? Are there any benefits in linking them?
I'm only 2 or 3 kettles away from being that creepy guy down the street with all the Webers

It's only for logging in.

It will not post anything.

FB is an advertising company, like Google but with a different business model to drive it. In this case, FB takes the discovery of the user's interest in grilling and uses it to send ads into the user's "news" feed (or more likely, the sidebar) for grilling-related stuff, or sells what it knows about the user to grilling-related companies etc. This is either innocuous, annoying, or worse depending on FB's mood that week for privacy-related policy.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch
