Automatically Login to Facebook with your Gmail or Yahoo Account

Facebook has come up with a new technique where you can automatically login to it with the account you are currently using.


In the above snap shot, you can see the linking of Facebook with your various accounts.

Now, if you login to any of the services like Google, Yahoo, MySpace, your account in Facebook will automatically login to the currently working account. This means that next time there is NO NEED need to type your login ID  and password all over again!

How to set up this privilege:

To set up this privilege between Facebook and Yahoo/Google Accounts, just

  • Go to Facebook -> Accounts Settings
  • Click on “Add a new linked account”.
  • This will login automatically to the current service you are using.

Facebook will let you link only one account at a time. For example, if you are sending an email via Gmail to anyone and using Yahoo answers, then it will ask you which account to link and thus, you can link to the respective account.

cool feature but when i tried to use this feature it show cert. error ” Technical Details uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

I Understand the Risks

If you understand what’s going on, you
can tell Firefox to start trusting this site’s identification.
Even if you trust the site, this error could mean that someone is
tampering with your connection.

Don’t add an exception unless
you know there s a good reason why this site doesn’t use trusted identification.”

but needs to be done, i even cleared cookies and restarted my browser and tried it in both ie & firefox and tried adding google and yahoo.
