Facebook Connected…

Over here on the The Lightfoot Lane Blog and also on the Sunday Talks Podcasts we’ve gone Facebook Connected.

What this means is that, if you are a Facebook user, you can use a couple of new features on both of the sites.

At the bottom of each blog or podcast you’ll see a button a bit like the one above. You can then click on the “Like” button.

Once you’ve clicked “Like” the button will change to show your Facebook profile picture and say that you’ve liked it.

It will also write something to your Facebook wall saying what you’ve liked, a bit like this:

You can also comment on a blog or podcast as a Facebook user by clicking on the “Leave a comment” link at the end:

You’ll then see a “Connect with Facebook” button:

The first time you click it you’ll be asked about allowing the connection to your Facebook account. Once you’re connected you can then add a comment and it will show that it’s come from you on Facebook:

You can also choose (via the little button at the bottom) to copy your comments to your Facebook wall.

Of course, if you’re not a Facebook user you can still leave a comment in the usual way. Give it a go and let us know how you get on.

New layout – let us know what you think?

We’ve changed the layout of both the blog and podcast sites – you probably noticed.

A few things have moved around but the content should all be the same. There are also a few new features, but nothing dramatic and everything should still work the same as it worked before.

One of the main changes has been to make the links to iTunes a bit clearer on the podcasts site. Somewhere along the line we had lost the direct link to iTunes on the site and as this is the preferred method for downloading the podcasts for many people it was important that it came back.

There are still some other minor things that we’d like to do, but we’ll get around to them at some point.

We’d really like to know what you think, and especially if you see any problems with the new layout.
