David Robins (dbrobins) | 24 comments I'm not sure if this is because I'm adding books to my read shelf via API (using OAuth API
"" which doesn't appear on the any more) or whether this isn't done in any case, but I'd like to see the review I add for a book published along with the general "read" notice (with the book cover photo and rating), or at least an option to do so if you don't think everyone will want this.

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) if you have the facebook app enabled and the account tied together, and the correct preferences, it should work.

However, facebook is pretty flakey at times, so this might not always be the case.

David Robins (dbrobins) | 24 comments Seems to have broken again (or perhaps it never got fixed and I just didn't check until now?) Adding books via the web UI works to add a Facebook wall post; adding via the API does not add to Facebook (as it once did). Do I have to set a special flag to do that?

Kale Mcnaney | 4 comments Adding reviews through the API doesn't currently publish into the Facebook feed, but this feature is in my queue and will be launched soon. I'll post an update once it's been released. Thanks!

Kale Mcnaney | 4 comments Hi David. API calls should now be pushing to facebook/twitter based on your user preferences. If you have any other trouble, please let me know. Thanks!
