Hey folks.

UFWDA is now on Facebook. Lots of new things are happening, stay informed.

Here's the link to the "Save Our Trails" cause page: http://apps.facebook.com/causes/249357

Be sure to check out the Discussion Board there too. The link is underneath the list of Top Recruiters to the right.


Be well,
Richard

I went there to join the WFWDA cause on Facebook.  Clicking on the "join" button resulted in the following dialog: "Allowing Causes access will let it pull your profile information, photos, your friends' info, and other content that it requires to work."

Sorry, I dont think so.

Good luck with this, but you will have to do it without me.

Hey Doc.

This is typical of Facebook applications, you have to approve them showing your name and picture so that they show up next to your posts on the cause page, and your friend's info is used so that you can invite them to the cause via a list of your friends that shows up for you when you use that function. Basically, you're just letting them use your existing Facebook info for this particular application.

Hope this helped.

Be well,
Richard
