Link Your Google/Yahoo account to your Facebook Profile


You can now link both your Google Account (including Gmail) and Yahoo ID with your Facebook profile

The advantage of linking you other online accounts with Facebook is that if you are signed-in into any of the above services, you’ll automatically be logged into Facebook as well. So for example, if you working in Google Docs or writing scraps in Orkut and then decide to open Facebook in another tab, you won’t see the Facebook sign-in screen anymore.

To set up this association between Facebook and Yahoo/Google Accounts, just go to Facebook -> Accounts Settings and click "Add a new linked account".

Facebook lets you link only one account per web service so choose the ID that you use most frequently on the web.

Hi K,

There is actually no connection between you reformatting your PC and your auto login not working (Because you see, auto login is a service by facebook, and it does not get formatted even if you format your PC!)

So, I suggest you clean your cache/cookies and then login . I think that would work
or otherwise you can try re-linking your accounts..

Regards
OG

ok see thats what i thought. so i did clear my cookies and tried to re-sign in many times.. sometimes the loading screen (in facebook) took along time to work while i was attaching my gmail. still nothing. is there anything else you can think of in my setting or something that would change that.. off hand. ive tried it in IE and mozfirefox. i even tried making a fake email and facebook account to see if it was just mine and still that account didnt work right. so either its something with my settings or just facebook having troubles as usual :S

Hi once again.
I'm assuming that you are doing most of the things right but still take a look

1) See the snapshot ..

Check that you haved ticked the remember approval box

2) Secondly, considering that you've reformatted your pc, did you re-install the adobe flash player for your browser (THough, i dont think that makes much of a difference)

TRy these :)

Thank you for your help, thank you for the picture. Yes I have done that about a 100 times now. I ticked all the approval boxes Ive installed flash player (you saying that made me think maybe there is something else i need to install but i cant think of what) I deleted my history and retried and retried again. still nothing when gmail is open and facebook is at the login screen, no auto login. im ready just to give up :(
