Fave Fonts in FaceBook

Sye's picture

ok, so i've just discovered that FaceBook has a thing that will update my newsfeed with info from last.fm - like when i love a track in last.fm, it says so on my wall in facebook.

does anybody know if this is possible for fonts too?

like from fontshop or myfonts etc?

i would love that feature! then i can share my fave fonts or font lusts easily...

i hope it can be done...

imangine if there was a 'love button' next to each font on a vendors website, then when i ticked it, it sent that info to my facebook...

@Jos - heehee, yes i am, but i seriously woudld love this feature... and it's basically free advertising for the foundry... so i guess it's a win/win :-)

@Chris - hahaha!

LOL ... bitchslap. Simon and I still can learn a lot from the Über-Superpoke (Beast)Master Chrisl. Today I saw that you can even throw a shoe. Do we need that SP-feature any longer?

Simon, why don't you poke Stewf a little?

Shoe throwing just does not have the same passion now as it did before January 20th :-)

Quite right. It's definitely not a thing you would use for (FB) friends anymore ;)

based on their current websites, i think myfonts is the best position to do something likes this as it has the star rating and 'i own this font' tick box. if that feture could be expanded to include a 'share' button that then posts the font on FB and other places then that would be awesome...

the really cool thing about the last.fm/FB combo is that once i've put my last.fm username into FB it autmatically updates as i do things in last.fm so that makes it easy.

actually veer is another player whoe might be able to do this...

so the top 3 sites that i see this feature most useful for are:

MyFonts
FontShop
Veer

obviously the small foundry sites could do it too! (hint hint jos! ;-)
