    You can now log into or join MSE's forums using your Facebook login details. It'll make joining and logging into the forum swift and easy. It also lets you post MoneySavingExpert.com user comments to your Facebook wall, though this is optional and won't happen automatically. Click the buttons below to do it, or see below for some Q&As.

    If you want to know more read on..


    I already have an MSE Forum account - can I link it to Facebook?

    Yes, click the "Log in via Facebook" button above. On the following page choose the "I've already got an MSE forum login" option and click "Next". Finally, enter your username and password and click "log in".

    Will my forum comments show my Facebook name?
    No, using Facebook Connect to log into the forum won't show your Facebook name. You'll still have an MSE username, Facebook Connect simply allows you to use your Facebook ID to log into our forum. Your privacy remains completely intact.

    Will my MSE forum posts appear on my Facebook page?
    Not if you don't want them to. By default, your posts aren't posted to Facebook. But if you do want to enable this function, you can do it anytime in your User Control Panel. We'll NEVER force this on you, or make it a requirement of forum use. However, please be aware that it exists and consider carefully whether you want to use it.

    Here are the different options for posting MSE Forum comments which can all be switched on and off in your User Control Panel:

    In your User Control Panel (User CP top left of your forum screen when logged in):

    “Ask if I want to post new threads I start to my Facebook wall”
    This gives you the option to post to your wall when you start a thread. This is simply letting us know you'd like the option, it does NOT actually post anything to your Facebook wall. We'll still check at the time you post whether or not you want it to appear on Facebook.

    “Default post-to-wall option to 'on'”
    When you start a thread, this will set the checkbox on the new thread to ‘on’, which means “please post this to Facebook”. Be careful with this - it's effectively saying it's likely you'll want to post most of your forum posts to your Facebook wall.

    At thread level (individual forum discussions)

    “Post to my Facebook wall”

    This checkbox tells us when you post a thread to the MSE forum, you want it to be posted to your Facebook page. This is set as OFF, unless you decide to switch the “default post-to-wall” option in your User Control Panel to ON, as mentioned above.

    I’ve tried it, I’m not keen. Can I take it off again?
    Absolutely. We’ve given you the option to "Disassociate Facebook" from your forum account at any time.

    What will posts look like on my Facebook page?
    At present, Facebook shows the MSE logo, our standard MSE tagline and a link to the forum thread. What's displayed is chiefly controlled by Facebook, but it currently looks like this:


    A final reminder
    With this, our aim's to make your MSE Forum experience easier and more social with Facebook. While, we reiterate, connecting your Facebook and MSE forum account DOES NOT compromise your privacy or tell people who you really are, posting to your wall obviously makes that connection a lot easier. Please ensure you're comfortable with this before you try it.
