New Feature: Facebook and Twitter Social Integration


Posted by Steve R on 14 June 2011 at 2:21 PM

Yep - it's here! You've been waiting patiently for this one for a while now, but we're delighted, and very very excited to announce our Facebook and Twitter integration has been extended across the site.  Some sites would roll these out over a few months - we've done the whole shebang (although plenty more still to come) - below is what we have added.

To make use of these features, you need to connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts in My Account - if you don't have your accounts connected, the check boxes will be greyed out.

And don't worry - we'll never post anything to your Facebook wall or tweet on your behalf - we hate sites that do that - anytime something is being posted outside of Tribesports, it's because you'll have a box ticked right next to the action you're doing - not to worry!

This is what we've done:

Like button on Tribes and Challenges

First off, on Tribe and Challenge pages, you can now see the recognisable Facebook like button.

Situated towards the top of the pages

Liking a Tribe or Challenge will act as a recommendation back to your Facebook friends - why not use it to tell people what Challenges you're taking, or which Tribes you're into at the moment.

Tell everyone about Completing a Challenge

And, you may have noticed now, when you complete a challenge, you get asked if you want to tell your Facebook friends and/or Twitter followers about your challenge completion - be proud - shout about it - tell all your friends!

Post your updates to Facebook and Twitter

And brand new today, is the ability to post your status updates, be it a general update, or against a Challenge, not only to Tribesports, but also to Twitter and Facebook - saving you the time posting to more than one place - you can use Tribesports now as the hub of your sports updates

Ask a question to Facebook and Twitter

Some of you have discovered it already, but the social integration has also been added to when you ask a question - you can now ask it out to a wider audience, by checking the Twitter and Facebook boxes.  We care about you getting answers to your sports problems - this should give you even more chance of getting the help that you need.

We hope you enjoy - any questions, please drop us a line at
