How we use Facebook
Integrate Your ExplorOz Activity with Your Facebook PageFor ExplorOz site users with a Facebook account, you might be interested to know this… If you use the Facebook login to ExplorOz, your ExplorOz Blogs and ExplorOz Forum Threads will automatically appear on your Facebook profile page too, which is kinda neat! But, if you prefer to keep things separate, just continue to use your ExplorOz login by entering your email address & password (and using the Remember Me function for auto login). It’s up to you.
How we integrate ExplorOz Activity with Our Facebook Page
ExplorOz has its own Facebook page, which has a direct feed of all Forum posts & blogs - https://www.facebook.com/ExplorOz. We allow people to post comments into these, so this means some people posting on our website will get comments on our Facebook page (but might not be aware of it). To ensure you never miss out on these responses (which don’t show up on the ExplorOz.com site) simply LIKE our ExplorOz Facebook page – this will add ExplorOz to your Facebook news feed so you can quickly glance at what’s being posted. We haven’t cross-linked the FB responses back into ExplorOz though. Let us know your thoughts, if you think we should.
