If you're one of the millions of people in the world who have Facebook accounts, you're probably familiar with the concept of Facebook updates. In most cases, unless you've changed your Privacy settings, Facebook alerts your friends when you have made changes to your profile or performed other activities that your friends may want to know about. iWeb '09 comes with ability to notify Facebook when you've made changes to your iWeb sites, thereby letting your friends know that there is new content on your site for them to check out. Although iWeb also has the ability to generate an email for you in which you can let friends know about your changes, using Facebook alerts can be much quicker and doesn't require any other interaction on your part once you've linked your iWeb site here to Facebook account.
To link your site to your Facebook account, select the site in the iWeb sidebar. You might have to scroll down to see the Facebook area and just check Update my Facebook profile when I publish this site. Next you will be asked to enter your Facebook account information and confirm that you really want to give iWeb the ability to update your Facebook account info. So I'm going to enter my email address and my password. I suggest checking Keep me logged in to iWeb, so you don't have to enter that information each time. Then click Login. Then when you see the message that you can now close the window, go ahead and click Finish.
So now, any time I update my site, a new message will appear in my Facebook profile and on my friend's Facebook home pages, letting them to know that I've made changes to my site and giving them a link to the site right there on their Facebook pages. You can see here it's telling me Updates will be published to 'Garrick Chow', my account. So let me just make a minor change to my site here. I'll just add an exclamation point at the end of the sentence. That should be enough of a change. Then I click Publish Site. My site has been published. I'm not going to bother looking at right now, but if I go out to my Facebook page, this is a Facebook profile I've set up and you can see I just have some minor information in here, but let's refresh this now.
You can see right here under Recent Activity, it tells me Garrick's iWeb site travel has been updated. So this message will appear not only on my profile page, but on the pages of all of my Facebook friends as well. When they click the link, they'll be taken right to my site where they can check out the changes I've made. So if you do have a Facebook account, you'll probably want to link your iWeb site to your Facebook account, so your friends will be able to know when you've updated your site as soon as you've updated your site and they can go check it out.
