With the introduction of Facebook and Twitter integration, you are now able to link your existing Community account to your Facebook or Twitter account as well as start up a new account if you don't already have one.

 

The benefits of linking your social media account with the Mr.Beer Community account are numerous.  You may easily post your new topic on your Facebook wall, as well as push or pull your Facebook and Twitter information such as profile image, status updates, and more between these accounts.


 

Linking to an Existing Mr.Beer Community Account to Social

You may link your Facebook or Twitter account to your existing Mr.Beer Account in 1 of 2 ways.

 

Method 1

  1. The first way involves going to your Mr.beer Community account drop down menu (top right of the page) and selecting "My Settings."  If you're already in your Profile page, you can also just go to the "Edit my Profile" button.
  2. Once here, you'll see both the option in the left menu to "Manage Facebook" and "Manage Twitter."  Select which account you'd like to link.
  3. Click the button to "Connect with ..."
  4. This will open up each social media sites own page and it'll walk you through the very short process of linking the two accounts.  Once down you'll be returned to the Mr.Beer Community Page.
  5. After you've completed the social media account log in request, you'll be taken back to your settings page, and you can configure what options you'd like enabled.  Congratulations, you can now log in to the Mr.Beer Community with your Facebook or Twitter Account!

Method 2

  1. The second way involves you logging out of your Mr.Beer Account and attempting to log in via the social media buttons to the left of the normal "Sign in" button.  Click the one you'd like to use.
  2. You will be taken to the social media site's log in or approval page in which you can follow the prompts to allow the Mr.Beer Community to create an account with the social media account of your choice. (this will not immediately create a duplicate account if you have an existing Mr.Beer Community Account.)
  3. Upon successful linking of the Mr.Beer Community Account to Facebook or Twitter, you will be taken back to the Mr.Beer Community site.  You will now have the option to create a new account with this information OR you can merge with an existing Mr.Beer Community Account.  You'll want to merge with an existing Mr.Beer Community Account.
  4. Congratulations, you can now log in to the Mr.Beer Community with your Facebook or Twitter Account!
