ThirdScribe + Facebook

We’re streamlining a lot of things here at ThirdScribe and speeding up how members register for the service and log into the service is one of them. To that end, are integrating Facebook into both of those processes.

Facebook integration is probably long overdue, but going about it took some doing. And, to that end, transitioning to it will also take a little bit of prep.

Connecting to Facebook is Purely Optional

Members old and new can continue to login and register with ThirdScribe completely independent of Facebook. This will always be preserved. However, if you want to take advantage of Facebook to simplify logging in, now you can.

The first part of this process is to give our existing members a chance to associate their ThirdScribe account with their Facebook account.

So, how does it work?

All About Your Email Address

Facebook registration is based on email address. If you used the same email address for ThirdScribe as you do for Facebook, then don’t worry about any of this – you’re all set and next week you’ll be able to log in via the Facebook button with no problems whatsoever.

If you did NOT use the same email address (I didn’t, so you’re in good company), it’s no big deal. Follow these easy steps and you’ll be fine.

Step 1: Log In

Just log in the usual way, with your regular ThirdScribe Username and Password.


Step 2: Go To Your Member Profile

The fastest way to get to your member profile is to click on your picture, wherever you see it.

Step 3: Select “Profile” On Your Member Profile

Now that you’re at your member profile, click on “Profile” to access to Profile Information tab (where your bio, social media links, etc are).

Step 4: Click the “Link With Facebook” Button

Last step! Scroll down to the bottom of your Profile Information screen until you see the “Facebook Associated Account” section. Click on that and you’re good to go.

All Done!

That’s it! Starting next week, you’ll be able to log in to ThirdScribe via Facebook.
