High Gear Media Adds Facebook Connect Features
Over the weekend here at High Gear Media HQ, we released an integration with Facebook Connect. The new feature allows you to sign into our 38 automotive web sites using your Facebook login, comment on stories we produce more easily than ever, and then quickly share those comments with your friends through your Facebook profile.
We’re really excited about this new feature and curious to see where you take it. There have been some interesting, recent blog posts on the changing nature of the web, and how social ties manifested through platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Digg increasingly allow users to discover great content they otherwise wouldn’t find.
These platforms can drive traffic to content sites differently than traditional search can. With this new feature, we’ve essentially made our content easier than ever for you to include in the conversation going on amongst Facebook’s 200+ million plus users. (So don’t be shy, now.)
Please note, that you will have complete control of if and when we publish comments made on our sites to your Facebook profile — we ask you twice on a per comment basis to make sure before we share any information with your Facebook friends, so feel free to comment away knowing we’ll only share exactly what you want us to.
This is also just the start for us — we’ll be rolling out additional functionality building on this new feature shortly. (We could tell you now, but then we’d have to…).
