Facebook Integration Update & More

We’ve updated our Facebook integration to the new open graph api and OAuth 2.0 authentication method. What does this mean to you?

  • No more expiring sessions, i.e. blips not posting to Facebook
    The old authentication was session based and the sessions would expire after a certain amount of time.
  • Post to pages other than your profile
    If you manage multiple Facebook pages, you’ll now be able to choose which pages your blips get sent to.
  • Choose Facebook page to receive blips

  • Find out which of your Facebook friends are on Blip.fm
    When viewing your account details we’ll show a list of all your Facebook friends who are also Blip.fm DJs.
  • Facebook friends who are on Blip.fm

If you’ve already integrated you’re Facebook account, you’ll need to update your Facebook authentication to see these updated options by visiting:

Click the “update authentication” link.
