For a while now, we've offered the ability for new members of RateItAll to sign up using their Facebook login. This allows these new members to pick and choose reviews that they write to share on Facebook with their Facebook friends.
Unfortunately, we weren't able to offer this functionality to existing RateItAll members, because we didn't have the ability to link an older RIA account with a Facebook account.
This is no longer the case.
We've just introduced the ability for anyone to link their RateItAll account to their Facebook account.
Why would you want to do this? Because it lets you easily share reviews with your Facebook friends, giving your reviews more visibility.
The key aspects of the program are as follows:
- it only takes one click to link your RateItAll and Facebook accounts
- you only share the reviews that you want to - each time you write a review, you are given the option of sharing it with your Facebook friends. If you don't want to, you don't have to - I probably only share about one out of ten reviews that I write.
- once you have linked your Facebook and RateItAll accounts, you will be able to login to RateItAll with one click
To link your RateItAll and Facebook accounts, click the Facebook icon on your home page:
Here's what the Facebook prompt looks like after you write a review:

I really hope that you will try this feature out. One of the fun things about RateItAll is the "instant feedback" aspect of the site. We write things, and people react to our opinions.
This new Facebook feature increases our collective reach to include our Facebook networks. Folks can even "like" and comment on your reviews right on Facebook.
Let me know if you have questions.
